Iran Accused of Attack on Israeli Shipping in Arabian Sea

At least one Israeli-owned vessel was attacked in the Arabian Sea on Feb. 10, a regional defense source said on Friday, in an attack supposedly carried out by Iran.

The source did not provide further details, but the British maritime security company (Ambry Intelligence) commented that three vessels were attacked by unmanned aerial systems in the Arabian Sea.

No injuries

The company estimated that Tehran launched the attack.

There were also no reports of injuries.

This announcement comes as the accusations between the two sides continue: Israel announced Thursday that it will not hesitate to push back Tehran and prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons.

A long hidden war

And he reiterated his opposition to the resumption of negotiations between the West and Iran, in view of the relaunch of the nuclear deal concluded in 2015.

While Tehran accuses Tel Aviv of carrying out attacks on its territory, the most recent of which was a drone attack on a military factory near the city of Isfahan, in the center of the country, months ago.

At the time, Iran promised to retaliate after what appeared to be the latest episode in a long covert war.
