Hundreds of weapons were found on a sailboat in the Gulf of Aden during a routine check by the US Navy.

An official from the Pentagon has confirmed that hundreds of small arms, including Kalashnikovs and AK-47s, were found on the vessel.

The official added that the boat was seized in an area where weapons were previously smuggled by the Houthi militias. He stated that the seized weapons were now being held on board the destroyer “USS Jason Dunam”.

Meanwhile, the head of the Yemeni Higher Relief Committee, Abdul-Raqeeb Fath, strongly condemned the Houthi militias blocking international relief organizations from receiving and distributing aid in Durahmi and Al-Haitha in Hodeidah.
