Drones were reportedly used to launch a fatal attack on an oil tanker in the Arabian Sea


London-based Zodiac Maritime, part of Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer’s Zodiac Group, said the attack killed two crew members, one from the United Kingdom and the other from Romania. It did not name them, nor did it describe what happened in the assault.


Without providing evidence, Israeli officials alleged that Iran carried out the attack.

Middle East Eye:

The incident is the latest in a series of attacks on Israeli- and Iranian-owned or managed cargo ships since late February, for which the two regional rivals have accused each other of responsibility.
