Iran Attacks an Israeli Ship
By Micah Halpern

Friday July 30, 2021
I've Been Thinking:

An oil tanker flying a Liberian flag that was a part of Israeli billionaire Eyal Oferís maritime group named Zodiac was attacked just north of the Omani island of Masirah. That puts it 185 miles from Muscat, the capital of Oman.

The ship is actually Japanese owned, leased by Zodiac and registered in Liberia.
Although owned by Ofer, an Israeli, Zodiac is a British based and registered company.

Two crewmembers were killed in the attack - one British and one Romanian.

This attack has international implications. It was perpetrated by a drone strike and Israel asserts, with absolute certainty, that the attacker was Iran.

In an official statement, the management of Zodiac Maritimecalled the attack piracy.

The statement read: ďAt the time of the incident the vessel was in the northern
Indian Ocean, traveling from Dar es Salaam to Fujairah with no cargo onboard.Ē In other words, the ship was making its way from a port in Tanzania to a port in the United Arab Emirates.

Israel will certainly respond to this attack. Because there were deaths and one of the crew members killed was British, England may join Israel in the response.

We will watch and see.
