A bulk carrier reported being struck by three missiles but continued its voyage. While the Houthis alleged a barrage of attacks recently only one has been confirmed by the international forces.

That was the multiple missile attack on the Marshall Island-flagged bulker Laax, which was hit on May 28, according to the statement of U.S. Central Command (USCENTCOM) forces.

The U.S. forces confirmed that Iranian-backed Houthis launched five anti-ship ballistic missiles from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen into the Red Sea on May 28, but the ship was reported being struck by three.

It was also reported that the vessel continued its voyage and there were no injuries reported by the U.S., coalition, or merchant vessels.

Separately, the U.S. forces successfully destroyed five uncrewed aerial systems (UAS) over the Red Sea, launched from an Iranian-backed Houthi-controlled area of Yemen.

The Philippine’s Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) reported on May 29 that all thirteen Filipino crew members and one Ukrainian seaman onboard a vessel attacked by Houthi rebels on Tuesday, 28 May 2024, are safe.

DMW in its report didn’t reveal the name of the ship but said that it was informed by the shipping company’s local manning agency that the vessel, a bulk carrier, sustained some damage from four missiles launched by Houthi rebels as the ship was traversing the Yemeni coast near Hodeidah.

The vessel is continuing its voyage to its next port of call, DMW said.

The DMW is communicating with the shipping and manning agencies, monitoring the safety and condition of the Filipino seafarers. The DMW is also contacting the crew members’ families to provide any assistance they may need.

The manning agency has also informed the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), an attached agency of the DMW, of the incident.
