Iran Press/ West Asia:  According to UK Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO), two vessels were attacked in the western and southwestern regions of the Yemeni city of Hodeidah. One of the merchant vessels was damaged due to the attacks. Al Mayadeen reported this information.

The first vessel has been attacked 50 nautical miles (58 miles) southwest of Hodeidah, the UKMTO said. The owner of the vessel has said two missiles had flown over the ship and detonated in the distance, adding that the crew was safe and the ship was not damaged.

The UKTMO announced that the ship would proceed to its next port of call.
