Oil tanker attack: Britain and US join Israel, strong words

Oil tanker attack: Britain and US join Israel, strong words

The United States and the United Kingdom joined Israel on Sunday in claiming that Iran deliberately leaked an oil tanker off the coast of Oman. AFP announced this.

“After reviewing the available information, we firmly believe that this attack was carried out by Iran.” US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said the attack was carried out using a drone.

“We are working with our partners to consider the next steps and consult with governments inside and outside the region on appropriate responses,” Blingen added.

We believe that this attack was deliberately targeted and clearly violates Iranian international law. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb said. According to him, the United Kingdom found it “highly possible” that the attack would be carried out by one or more drones.

Israeli Prime Minister Naphtali Bennett said on Sunday that Israel had evidence that Iran was responsible for the attack on the tanker. “There is wisdom in that, and we expect the international community to make it clear that Iran has done wrong … Anyway, we can send a message to Iran ourselves,” Bennett said.

The Mercer Street oil tanker, flying the flag of Liberia, is owned by Japanese owners. The ship is operated by the London-based Zodiac Maritime Company, which is owned by Israeli President Ezel Offer. A Romanian man and a British man were killed in an attack on a tanker on Thursday.
