A British-owned cargo vessel has been attacked in the Red Sea, the UK Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) said, APA reports citing Sky News.

The ship was attacked west of Hodeida in Yemen just after midnight on Tuesday.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but the Associated Press reports Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen are suspected.

The UKMTO said the ship's master was "aware of a small craft on his Port side" before a projectile was fired at the ship.

No crew were injured and the vessel sustained small damages to its bridge windows.

The vessel was deemed safe to continue its journey.

British maritime security firm Ambrey said a Barbados-flagged, general cargo ship owned by a British company incurred physical damage from an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) while sailing southeast through the Red Sea.
