Unnamed defense sources told Channel 13 on Saturday that an explosion aboard MV Helios Ray vehicle-carrier ship was believed to have been caused by two Iranian-made missiles.
The Arab Coalition announced that the second Yemeni drone attack took place just hours after the first unsuccessfully targeted the Saudi city of Khamis Mushait.
Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz has accused Iran of likely being behind Friday’s blast on an Israeli-owned transport ship in the Gulf of Oman, saying it’s their “initial assessment” that the incident was an Iranian attack.
Based on the Saturday statement, it would appear that the claim by Gantz wasn’t backed by any actual intelligence, but was rather based on the geography of the incident and the current geopolitical situation in the Middle East.
However, Gantz acknowledged that the blast needed further investigation for the culprit to be established with certainty, saying that we are committed to continuing to check.
