ASKET update:

Saudi coalition forces reported that the Turkish bulker Ince Inebolu suffered an explosion of unknown cause while anchored about 70 nm off the port of Hodeidah, Yemen.

Images published in Houthi-controlled media show the Inebolu's hull plating bowed outwards and a large hole with jagged edges curled towards the exterior of the vessel. Additional small holes with edges pointing outwards were also visible in the weather deck.

The ships manager stated the vessel had been struck by a missile. The vessel was delivering wheat loaded in Russia.
