On Monday, 16 people were killed including around seven children following an air strike by the Saudi-led coalition in the area.
In a statement carried by Saudi media, the coalition said the oil tanker was in global waters when it came under "Houthi-Iranian attack".
The tanker continued on its route "after the rapid intervention of a coalition naval vessel", it said. European Union naval forces also confirmed the incident, saying there were no casualties.
Al-Malki said a coalition naval ship accompanied the oil tanker until it completed its navigation north. Pictures carried by state-run Saudi al-Ekhbariya TV showed a hole ripped through the side of the ship but no oil leaking out. It gave no further details.

The Saudi-led coalition has been at war with the Iran-allied Houthis for more than three years, a conflict that has killed more than 10,000 Yemenis and devastated the Arab world's poorest country.
