Arrow Suspected Missile Attack on Ship Puts Spotlight on Iran, Israel Tensions

Suspected Missile Attack on Ship Puts Spotlight on Iran, Israel Tensions

Israeli security officials said Iran is likely behind an alleged attack on a cargo ship in the northern Indian Ocean, Arabic TV stations reported Sunday, with the vessel having been hit by an "unknown weapon" which started a fire.

The Al-Mayadeen Lebanese television channel reported early Sunday that the Liberian-flagged cargo ship, the Tyndall, was damaged this weekend in the wake of a series of sabotage incidents between Israeli and Iranian ships in the region.

Although some outlets initially reported that the cargo ship was owned by Israeli businessman Eyal Ofer, sources later confirmed that it had been recently sold and the crew was not from Israel. The ship currently flies the Liberian flag, and defense officials from several countries in the region are still investigating the Sunday incident.

The Ofer family reportedly sold the container ship two months ago and the vessel currently has no affiliation with any Israeli company, the Jerusalem Post noted Sunday.

Ship-tracking data showed the vessel had most recently been docked in Jeddah off the coast of Dubai.


Personal note: I work in Jeddah for about 7-8 months on their new docks they were constructing.
Jeddah is a beautiful city and many internationals work there. Rules there are very strict -
I mean very strict! Once a week they would get the internationals to come down and witness
punishment at the post office.

It was brutal so if you're ever there don't get into any trouble - one of our guys got three
days in a cage in the sun for something that he didn't think would get him in
trouble - it was that had he come to attain some black market sadiki (homebrew)
outlawed - but still made in certain areas for some quick American dollars.
A few got sent home early - other's just couldn't take the heat and long working
hours. Good pay but don't screw up!

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
