A few hours after the incident, state TV reported that Saudi-led coalition forces were destroying an explosives-laden boat and a commercial vessel was damaged in the process.
Ambrey, a British security firm, reported the blast and attributed it to a mine. "It is possible [that it was from a mine], certainly it was a blast". "The ship is in good condition, everyone is OK". It did not say when the incident happened but noted the vessel had arrived at al-Shuqaiq on November 23.
"It was attacked by an unknown source ... after completion of her discharging and preparing to depart", it said.
The statement from the Agrari's operators said the vessel was struck "about one metre above the waterline and has suffered a breach".
The ship that had cargo from the Dutch port city of Rotterdam did not sink and Saudi officials went on board for inspections.
The Agrari is an aframax crude oil tanker, data on TMS Tankers website showed.

Houthi leader Muhammed Ali Houthi did not explicitly deny the attack, but said in a tweet that any military or security operations are announced through military and security establishments officially.
