Israeli-Owned Ship Came Under Attack In Indian Ocean - Reports

A container ship owned by an Israeli billionaire came under attack by a suspected Iranian suicide drone in the Indian Ocean, a United States defense official told the Associated Press on November 25.

The attack comes as Israel wages an unprecedented war on the Hamas Movement and other Palestinian armed factions in the Gaza Strip.

The unnamed official told the news agency that the Malta-flagged CMA CGM Symi was likely targeted by a triangle-shaped, bomb-carrying Shahed-136 drone while in international waters on November 24. The drone exploded, causing damage to the ship but not injuring any of its crew.

“We continue to monitor the situation closely,” the official said. The official declined to explain why the US military believed Iran was behind the attack.

Al-Mayadeen TV, which is allied with the Iranian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah group, reported earlier that an Israeli ship had been targeted in the Indian Ocean. The news channel said that the attack took place a few hours before a temporary ceasefire in the Gaza Strip agreed upon by Israel and Hamas came into effect. It cited anonymous sources for the report.

CMA CGM is a major shipper based in the French port city of Marseille. Meanwhile, the Symi is owned by Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping, which is a company ultimately controlled by Israeli billionaire Idan Ofer.

The Iranian-backed Houthis (Ansar Allah) threatened to target Israeli owned or operated ships sailing near Yemen and in other areas after the outbreak of the war in Gaza. On November 19, vehicle carrier Galaxy Leader, which is partly owned by Israeli businessman Abraham Ungar, was seized by the group.

It is very likely that the attack on CMA CGM Symi was carried out by the Houthis, who possess a version of the Iranian Shahed-136 drone known as Waied.

waiting for someone to shoot archduke franz ferdinand or blow up a building already rigged with explosives from a cave somewhere so the western world can convince someone to go to war for the globalists, looks like iran this time.

jews, juden, jahudis, djugash, kikes that’s the name of the problem. they always hide behind different names and labels like communism, bolshewism, zionism, lgtbq, transhumanism, satanists, khazars, capitalists, feminists, chabadians, frankists, globalists etc. etc. but bottom line is – it is all jews !!! and judaism is the highest form of satanism !!!

theresa says the truth. in the torah the jewish “god” call for the genocide of the non jews literally dozen of time. he ask it’s chosen people to use the “gentiles” as cattle, to enslave them by usury and debt…… this is the jewish most sacred text…

concerned citizen

i guess that type of drone is not a anti ship weapon. but it shows that something else could be used globally.
