Iranian Drone Attack

Iranian Drone Strike Hits Oil Tanker

(Discern Report)—Iran is escalating their war against the West, a war that goes undeclared and that is almost entirely being waged by their side. Their latest targets seem to be any ships that cross international waters within weapons range.

A U.S. official disclosed to Fox News on Saturday that Iran seemingly conducted an unmanned aerial vehicle strike on a ship off the Indian coast. Simultaneously, Houthi militants targeted multiple cargo ships by launching two anti-ship ballistic missiles into international shipping lanes in the Southern Red Sea, as confirmed by U.S. Central Command.

Fortunately, the ballistic missiles didn’t hit any ships, averting potential disasters at sea.

In response to the escalating situation, the USS Laboon intercepted and neutralized four unmanned aerial drones on Saturday, traced back to regions under Houthi control in Yemen.

Additionally, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command received distress signals from two ships in the Southern Red Sea at 8 p.m. on Saturday, reporting attacks. The Norwegian-flagged M/V Blaamanen, a chemical/oil tanker, narrowly avoided a strike by a Houthi one-way attack drone, causing no injuries. The second vessel, the Gabon-owned Indian-flagged M/V Saibaba transporting crude oil, reported being hit by a one-way attack drone. Luckily, no injuries were sustained, and the USS Laboon promptly responded to these attacks.

These distressing events mark the 14th and 15th instances of Houthi Militants targeting commercial ships since October 17, underscoring a worrisome pattern of aggression in maritime regions.
