Houthis say they block sea landing by coalition forces near Yemeni port

DUBAI (Reuters) - Yemen's Houthis blocked a sea landing by Saudi and Emirati forces near Hodeidah port on Wednesday, holding off a Saudi-led coalition attack on the country's main port city, a Houthi official told Lebanon's al-Mayadeen TV.

"The Saudi coalition has not advanced at all in Hodeidah," Dayfallah al-Shami, a member of the movement's political bureau, told the pro-Iranian al-Mayadeen. "We foiled a sea landing of Saudi and Emirati forces near the port of Hodeidah."
