“Their vessel which sustained slight damage was sailing close to the Yemeni port city of Hodeida when it was attacked. The vessel is continuing on its journey to its next port of call,” the department said.


The DMW also said that it was in close coordination with international maritime authorities, shipping companies, and local manning agencies regarding the status of ships carrying Filipino seafarers who were navigating at high risk areas and war-like zones in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.
