Drone Hit Tanker Linked To Israel Off India’s Coast

An Israel-affiliated tanker sailing in the Arabian Sea off India’s west coast was struck by a drone, causing a fire, British military’s United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) and maritime security firm Ambrey said on December 23.

Ambrey said that the fire on the Liberian-flagged chemical products tanker was extinguished without crew casualties in the incident.

This was confirmed by UKMTO which said the incident took place some 200 kilometers southwest of the Indian city of Veraval.

“Some structural damage was also reported and some water was taken onboard. The vessel was Israel-affiliated. She had last called Saudi Arabia and was destined for India at the time,” Ambrey said on its website.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the strike. Last month, an Israeli-owned cargo ship was targeted in a suspected drone attack by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in the Indian Ocean, according to United States officials.

The strike also came following a series of drone and missile attacks on commercial shipping in the Red Sea by the Iranian-backed Houthis (Houthis), who say they are supporting Palestinians under siege by Israel in the Gaza Strip.

Recent attacks in the Red Sea forced some of the world’s largest shipping companies to suspend operations there, causing a shipping crisis.

The U.S. launched Operation Prosperity Guardian to “ensure the safety of maritime traffic” in the Red Sea, Bab al-Mandeb and Gulf of Aden on December 18. However, the operation is already facing problems. Spain, Italy and France refused to take part in the operation. Several other allies of Washington declined to send warships.

israel ignores united nations resolutions and the worldwide pleas to stop genocide so declaring itself an outlaw, a criminal state. so israel no longer has international law protection at sea.

yes israel gives a f*** because nearly our whole planet is infiltrated & subdued and ruled by jews and their oligarchs & banker marionettes. this elephant in the room is that needs to be targeted by the people’s wrath. but the globally active hook-nosed cunts called jews, are always hiding behind dozens of different camouflages. here to everyone, please take this eye-opening picture and show it to everybody to make the world realize the truth !! http://alturl.com/naqiw

seems to me censorship of the truth is the culprit. until the hard questions are asked and answered, all is lost…! we now know the “who”. it is time for the what, when, where, why and how to come into play. without this, the status quo will remain and nothing will change.

“the vessel was israel-affiliated. she had last called saudi arabia and was destined for india” the fact that saudis are still in business with the genocidal racist colonial enterprise that is israel, even as it is slaughtering palestinians, tells you how corrupt the saud family is.
