Iran has not explicitly acknowledged the attack, but the attack comes at a time when Tehran is on the verge of taking an even tougher stance with the West and the country has expressed its staunch support for Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as president. is visible.
Two people died in the attack
The US Navy’s West Asia-based Fifth Fleet said in a statement on Saturday morning that the nuclear-powered US aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and the guided missile destroyer USS Mitscher are now escorting it until it reaches the safe harbor at Mercer Street. Huh. A day earlier, the company that managed the oil tanker had said that two of the crew, who were residents of Britain and Romania, were killed in the attack (Arabian Sea Oil Tanker Attack).
America is cooperating in the investigation
The Fifth Fleet said, “US Navy explosives specialists are now on board the ship to ensure there is no additional threat to crew members and are ready to cooperate with the investigation of the attack.” It said, ‘It is clear from the initial indications that this is a drone attack.’ At this time a proxy war is going on between Iran and Israel.
