Iran Rules Out Its Involvement in Assault on Mercer Street Ship Off Oman

The Liberian-flagged vessel, managed by the London-based firm Zodiac Maritime was reportedly attacked by a drone on Thursday, while it was sailing about 185 miles off the coast of Oman. The incident claimed the lives of two people – a British security guard and a Romanian crew member.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry has slammed reported accusations by Israel, stressing that the Islamic Republic is not linked to the attack targeting an oil tanker in the Arabian Sea.

“[Israel] has created insecurity, terror, and violence… these accusations about Iran’s involvement are condemned by Tehran”, Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Sunday.
