A Houthi rebel spokesperson denied claims that the explosions were at an arms depot, stating they occurred at a gas station and were the result of unexploded ordnance from a past war.
The Houthis have repeatedly launched missile and drone attacks toward Israel during the war and targeted U.S. naval vessels in the Arabian Sea. They also targeted cargo ships and an oil tanker owned or operated by Israeli businessmen.

The White House said on Monday that the attack on three vessels in the Red Sea over the weekend constituted threats to international peace and stability. In a briefing with reporters, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Washington has "every reason to believe that these attacks, while they were launched by the Houthis in Yemen, are fully enabled by Iran."
The Houthis renewed their attacks on Israel following the collapse of the truce in the Gaza Strip after announcing they were prepared to resume their military operations against the Jewish state.
