An Israeli ship was reportedly damaged after explosion in an Iranian missile attack while sailing through the Arabian Sea towards India, according to reports from Hebrew-language broadcaster Channel 12.
The incident was reported to Israel’s Defence Ministry, which notified the shipping company located in the port city of Haifa. The vessel is reported to have continued inbound Mundra with no casualties reported.
Reports say the vessel is suspected to be the container vessel MT LORI. Details remain unclear regarding the precise nature of the incident, but if confirmed, this would be the second incident involving the targeting of an Israeli-owned vessel with the last attack alleged by Iran, against the MV HELIOS RAY on 25 February.
