Gulf of Oman attack – US says Iran is behind ‘torpedo’ attack

The USA said tonight that Iran was behind the "torpedo attack" on an American-linked oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman.

Both the Front Altair and the Panama-flagged Kokuka Courageous - which was reportedly bombed - burst into flames and were forced to evacuate in the troubled region this morning.

And now, in comments bound to ignite tensions between the two countries, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the "blatant" attacks.

He said they were part of a "campaign" of "escalating tension" by Iran and a threat to international peace and security.

"It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks that occurred in the Gulf of Oman today," Pompeo told reporters.

Clearly it was the Iranians.

Israel must be behind this. After all they have a vested interest in destabilizing the region and forming Greater Israel.
