Evil Deeds in Int'l Waterways Not to Go Unanswered: Iran's Shamkhani

A senior Iranian security official said Saturday that an attack on one of the country's oil tankers will not go unpunished, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"At 11:47 local time on Friday, an e-mail was received from Jedda seaside station including a message from SABITI's captain", the Saudi official said, "The message said the bow of the tanker was damaged causing oil released into the sea".

This photo released by the official news agency of the Iranian Oil Ministry, SHANA, shows Iranian oil tanker Sabiti traveling through the Red Sea on October 11, 2019.

NIOC, the company that owns the vessel, later dismissed the claims that it had been a Saudi missile attack, but confirmed that the ship sustained damage.

"All the ship's crew are safe and the ship is stable too", NITC said, adding those on board were trying to fix the damage. Washington accused Tehran of attacking the vessels with mines and to be behind the drone assault, something it strongly denied.
