Iran said on Thursday that it will “without a doubt” respond to the widely reported attack on an Iranian military vessel in the Red Sea that occurred Tuesday. A spy vessel later identified as the Saviz was damaged in the incident, with the The New York Times alleging that Israel was behind a naval mine attack.
Anonymous US officials had told Reuters the US did not conduct the attack; however, in Thursday’s statement a top Iranian general indicated that Tehran believes both Israel and the United States were behind the Red Sea mine attack. This after Israel appears to have owned up to it according to a US official’s statement to the Times.
“We will respond without any doubt to the attack on our ship Saviz in the Red Sea once we identify those involved,” Iran’s military spokesman Brig. Gen. Abolfazl Shekarchi said to Sputnik Arabic.
