The United States and Britain joined Israel on Sunday in accusing Iran of carrying out a deadly drone attack on an oil tanker off the coast of Oman in the Arabian Sea. Exerting further pressure on Tehran because Tehran denied involvement in the attack.
British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab called this an “illegal and relentless attack,” and his country and its allies plan to respond in a concerted manner to the strike on the Mercer Street tanker on Thursday night.
Justifications of U.S. Secretary
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken followed suit, stating that “There is no justification for this attack because it followed a series of attacks and other militant acts.”
The Mercer Street strike marked the first deadly attack in the region after years of attacks on commercial shipping in the region related to Iran’s tense situation due to its broken nuclear agreement.
Although no one claimed responsibility for the attack, Iran and its militia allies had previously used so-called “suicide” drones to carry out attacks, which would crash into targets and detonate their explosives.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett spoke at a cabinet meeting on Sunday that went further than Rab.
He looked straight into the camera and slowly warned: “In any case, we know how to use our own Ways to convey information to Iran.”
An American bureaucrat said that the drone attack blasted a crack in the top of the tanker bridge, where the captain and crew commanded the ship. As the investigation into the attack is still ongoing, the official requested anonymity. The explosion killed two crew members from Britain and Romania.
Brinken also described the United States as “confident” that Iran used multiple drones to carry out the attack.
Earlier, Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesperson for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, described the allegations of Iran’s attack as “baseless”.
“This is not the first time that the Zionist regime that occupied Jerusalem has made such a hollow accusation against the Islamic Republic of Iran.” “No matter where this regime goes, it is accompanied by instability and terror. And violence.”
Israeli and British ambassadors told Axios that the next step would be to call together a UN Security Council conference.
“We are functioning with our associates, taking into consideration our next steps, and consulting with governments within and outside the area on an appropriate reply, which will be coming soon,” Brinken said.
People are showing extreme tension towards this blame even some of them said; Israel always wanted to start a war against Iran which is totally understandable too from the previous history of Israel. What do you think? Lemme know in the comments down below.
