The vessel was targeted off the western coast of Yemen by the armed Houthi movement. Three sailors were also injured in the attack. The attacks follow weeks of combat on Yemen’s western coast between the Iran-allied Houthis and the coalition backing Yemen’s internationally recognized government.
A statement on state news agency SPA from the Saudi-led coalition reported ‘A Saudi frigate on patrol west of Hodeidah port came under attack from three suicide boats belonging to the Houthi militias.’
One of the boats smashed into the rear of the warship, causing an explosion and a fire that killed two crew members and wounded three others.
