The Saudi warship was precisely targeted by the Yemeni missile in al-Hudayda province as the vessel was trying to get close to al-Khokheh coastal waters.
The sunken ship had repeatedly fired rockets at residential areas in Ta'iz province, inflicting casualties and destruction there.
This is the 12th time that a Saudi warship is sent deep into the waters of Bab al-Mandab Strait by the Yemeni forces.
Other Saudi battleships that were approaching Yemen's coasts retreated fast following the attack.

Khaled Khateeb, 21, who worked on the Netflix documentary "White Helmets," was scheduled to arrive in California on Saturday.
He was issued a visa to attend the awards show, however the Associated Press' internal U.S. government correspondence reported that Turkish authorities detained him this week."

Are you wondering whether the transnational corporations, who are the military industrial complex and warlord bankers and brokers, are going to be able to overthrow the United States government?
Do you get upset and wonder why "Obomber and Killary" have attacked seven sovereign nations, killing millions and creating the largest refugee crisis in history, and the US Congress stands back and does nothing?
Are you concerned that the Bush/Clinton/Obama regime will sell-out America to transnationalism through George Bush Sr.'s original plan to create a New World Order is about to be complete?
Is it time for We the People to take back America in a Second American Revolution that enforces existing laws and jails treasonous criminals who have broken our laws for personal gain and unconstitutional power?
Comment: Join or die, eh? How about this: We continue to learn and share all we can about this incredibly large and complex power struggle so that when there is an opportunity to expose something important, those who may be in a position to do something about it can - and even then, one hopes, the correct course of action will be taken that is informed with very high levels of knowledge, discretion, wisdom, and foresight among other things.

Right-wing organizations—and their billionaire funders—have been working feverishly for decades to get state legislatures to call for such a convention, with the explicit aim of limiting the powers of the federal government
During a Colorado Springs rally on Oct. 18, 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump announced, "The time for congressional term limits has finally arrived." For many, it was one of Trump's more moderate proclamations. Term limits don't sound like such a bad idea.
But it's possible this comment signaled support for a broader, more partisan agenda. Term limits are a central demand for a growing movement of states-rights activists focused on weakening the federal government—and they are dangerously close to convening the first state constitutional convention in U.S. history.
Comment: The issue has been brought up on multiple fronts over the years
