Yemen's armed Houthi movement said Sunday that it could attack warships and oil tankers from enemy countries in retaliation against the closure of Yemeni ports by a Saudi-led military coalition last week.Two days later, the Saudi-led coalition responded by closing access to Yemeni ports, saying this was needed to stop arms reaching the Houthis.Houthi leader Abdel-Malek al-Houthi said in September his group could target Saudi oil tankers should the coalition attack Yemen's main port at Hodeidah.The coalition opened a land border crossing Thursday between Saudi Arabia and territory held by the Saudi-backed government, and the port at Aden was reopened on Wednesday. But ports in Houthi-held areas have remained shut.
