Iranian missiles hit an Israeli-owned ship in the Arabian Sea, a report says

Iran fired missiles at an Israeli-owned ship in the Arabian Sea, Channel 12 reported.

The carrier, which was said to be en route from Tanzania to India, was hit by a small project and caused minimal damage, Channel 12 reported. The ship was identified as the LORI , owned by Israeli businessman Udi Angel and registered in Liberia.

Israeli security sources believe the launch was an Iranian attack, the report said.

The incident was reported to the Israeli security center and to the owners of the Haifa-based shipping company, XT Management.

The vessel will continue to India and be evaluated.

Officials believe the suspected attack was in retaliation for an attack on a boat in Iran off the coast of Syria, which Tehran handed over to Israel.

Last month, another Israeli-owned cargo ship suffered a mysterious explosion while sailing in the same area.

At about the same time, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for exploding aboard an Israeli ship in the Gulf of Oman.

The MV Helios Ray carrier was struck between February night. February 25 and. 26 with an explosion above the water line that a U.S. official said was tearing holes on either side of his shell. An Israeli official said limpet mines were used.

Iran denied any involvement at the time.

“We strongly reject this accusation,” Saeed Khatibzadeh, the critic for Tehran’s foreign ministry.
