1129 - 05/17 – NYA Special Advisory - Naval Mines off Yemen
NYA International has produced, exclusively for the UK P&I Club, the latest intelligence regarding Naval mines off the coast of Yemen.
NYA International, a leading Global Risk & Crisis Management Consultancy, has produced the attached report exclusively for UK P&I Club Members which details the latest intelligence on the current situation in Yemeni Waters.
The current situation is:
- A substantial threat from naval mines is present off the western Yemeni coastline – especially in
the vicinity of Mokha, Al-Hudaydah and Midi
- Vessels transiting the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait and southern Red Sea should maintain the furthest
possible distance from the Yemeni coast
- MBIEDs and naval mines are unlikely to deliberately target commercial shipping in the Red Sea
and Bab-el-Mandeb Strait though the threat of drifting, acoustic or magnetic contact cannot be
As such, vessels transiting the area should keep a very careful look out and continue to monitor UKMTO, MSHOA Nav Warns and websites for updates.
