    Israel notifies US it attacked Iranian ship in Red Sea - report

    A cargo ship was really a ruse for the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. So Israel attacked it. But only light damage.


    Israel notifies US it attacked Iranian ship in Red Sea - report

    Israel notified the US that it is responsible for the Tuesday attack on an Iranian cargo ship affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, an American official told The New York Times.

    A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry confirmed on Wednesday that the Saviz was lightly damaged in the Red Sea off the coast of Djibouti at about 6 a.m. on Tuesday due to an explosion, adding that the cause of the explosion is under investigation.




    "The Saviz civilian ship was stationed in the Red Sea region and the Gulf of Aden to establish maritime security along the shipping lanes and to counter piracy," said the spokesman. "This ship practically acted as a logistics station (technical support and logistics) of Iran in the Red Sea, and therefore the specifications and mission of this ship had previously been officially announced."


    According to the Foreign Ministry, no casualties were reported.


    When asked about the alleged attack, Defense Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz told Channel 12 news that he would not discuss "any of the operations that are taking place in the Middle East and are associated with" Israel.

    "The State of Israel must continue to defend itself," said Gantz. "Wherever we find an operational challenge and operational need we will continue to act."

    The ship has been sitting anchored in the same spot for years, and has never been considered to be a threat to Israel or to anyone else. This is an Israeli attempt to derail the talks currently going on aimed at re-instituting the Iran nuclear deal and having the U.S. return to it.

    Geopolitical Futures notes it was an Israeli mine that damaged the ship.

    Rumored to be a Iranian surveillance ship.

    Well if that's the case then that rules out wolfs post. Sitting ships don't hit enemy sea mines.

    They didn't say what type of mine it was. A limpet mine would be attached to the vessel by a combat diver.

    Reports are that it was, in fact, a limpet mine that damaged the ship.
