Yemeni fighters say they have hit a vessel operated by the United Arab Emirates military, which is part of an Arab coalition fighting in support of Yemen’s government.

The UAE military said on Saturday a boat under its command was involved in an “incident” in the Bab al-Mandeb Strait. It said there were no casualties.

“Rockets targeted an Emirati warship as it approached the coast of Mokha” on the Red Sea, Yemen’s Houthi fighters said in a statement on their sabanews.net website.

“It was completely destroyed,” said the Iran-allied Houthis.

A video posted on social media, purporting to be a footage of the incident, showed a vessel being targeted at night and later was on fire. Al Jazeera could not independently confirm the authenticity of the video.
