Iranian tanker exploded off the coast of Saudi Arabia

The lull in the situation around Iran after Tehran released the previously detained British tanker Stena Impero turned out to be misleading.




World media reported that in the Red Sea, near the port of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, a tanker belonging to the national oil company of Iran exploded.

According to available information, as a result of two explosions that occurred with a difference of 20 minutes, two tanks were damaged, which led to an oil leak. It is also alleged that the crew of the tanker is safe.

The Iranian news agency Tasnim cites a statement from the press service of the company owning the tanker, which states that the missile attack on an Iranian ship was the alleged cause of the explosions. The explosions occurred early in the morning at 05.00 and 05.20 local time.


The expert community notes that there are so many people interested in this terrorist attack that it makes no sense to guess who specifically carried out this attack. Currently, no one has claimed responsibility for an attack by an Iranian tanker in the Red Sea.

Be that as it may, a mode of influence such as a missile attack is unlikely to contribute to reaching agreements and pacifying a region torn by endless wars.

    - Some very poorly planned and organized re-enactment ... it is not clear why ... And where does the missile attack (even two) ...
    - Such a clearly undisguised desire to fasten all this to the actions of Yemen ..., which was given the task of dropping on this Iranian tanker ... by Chinese missiles, which were guided by Chinese instructors ... - they trained the Bahtiyars there ... - Well, those and banged and ... and apparently not very well ...
    - And who else has the mind to work so clumsyly ...
    - It seems that this could stir up China .., which needs to increase its military presence in Iran in all its forms ... - even in Iran and its border territory; at least on its ships of Iran; as well as in the airspace of Iran; at least some caravan movements of Iranian oil products and other products ...
    - But this shelling ... is clearly not enough ... -

    Do not get reliable glory
    As long as no blood is shed ...


    - If everything continues in the same vein .. then my predictions will be confirmed ... and the physiognomy of China will come up ...

      You do not cease to please us with the scope of imagination. love

      And where does the missile attack (even two) ...

      The interval between explosions is about 20 minutes. That it was precisely a missile attack could be identified by characteristic damage.

      Such a clearly overt desire to fasten all this to the actions of Yemen .., which was given the task of dropping on this Iranian tanker ... by Chinese missiles, the guidance of which was provided by Chinese instructors ... - they trained the "Bahtiyars" there ... - Well, those and banged and ... and it’s not very successful ...
      - And who else has the mind to work so clumsyly ...

      Just a masterpiece of analytical thought. fellow How can this conclusion be drawn from this article? I am impressed. hi Who said about Yemen? Assume this ... belay The shelling by the Yemenis of an Iranian tanker is the same as suspecting the DPR of shelling Russian ships in the Sea of ​​Azov.
      If it’s no secret, where does the data about Chinese missiles and instructors come from? laughing

      It seems that this could stir up China .., which needs to increase its military presence in Iran in all its forms.

      Iran and China signed a strategic agreement, China will invest in Iran’s infrastructure, including transport and energy, and in return will receive access to Iranian oil at preferential prices, and even the right to deploy its military forces in the country.
