Alleged Iranian Missile Strikes Israeli-Owned Cargo Vessel off Oman Coast

An Iranian missile reportedly struck an Israeli ship off the coast of Oman while it was sailing from Tanzania to India,

The Israeli-owned and Liberian-flagged container ship Lori departed from Dar es Salaam in Tanzania on March 21 and set off for the port of Mundra on the west coast of India, when it was attacked.

According to Israel’s Channel 12, who first reported on the story, the ship was only lightly damaged and continued sailing to Mundra.

Haifa-based XT Management Ltd. was identified to be the owner of the Lori but they have not yet confirmed the incident. 

There are also no reports yet from the IDF and IRGC to provide more details about the incident. 

Earlier this month, Iran accused Israel of being behind an explosion that damaged an Iranian container ship in the Mediterranean while Israel blamed Tehran of attacking another Israeli-owned cargo vessel in the Persian Gulf last February.
