The Arab Coalition said it destroyed two mines laid by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi militia in the south of the Red Sea, Saudi Arabia’s state TV reported on Friday.

Houthi forces have staged many missile and drone strikes on civilian airports and oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, including on the capital Riyadh.

Cross-border attacks by Houthi forces, who control most of north Yemen, have escalated since late May when a ceasefire arrangement prompted by the coronavirus pandemic expired.
