Yemen's Houthi rebels attacked a Saudi oil tanker in the Red Sea Tuesday, causing "minor damage" to the ship, the Saudi-led coalition battling the rebels said.The coalition said a naval ship belonging to a member country rapidly intervened, without giving further details.Al-Malki said a coalition naval ship accompanied the oil tanker until it completed its navigation north. The Houthis have in the past targeted military ships belonging to coalition partners Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, but the attacks have failed to cause any substantial damage.Tuesday's attack came one day after an airstrike by the Saudi-led coalition killed at least 14 people near Hodeida.The Saudi-led coalition has been at war with the Iran-allied Houthis for more than three years, a conflict that has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis and devastated the Arab world's poorest country.
