US Blames Iran for Oil Tanker Attacks, Navy Says Limpet Mines 'Likely' Used
The US Navy has said limpet mines were “likely” used in the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman on June 13, and released video it says shows the crew of an Iranian patrol boat removing unexploded mines from one of the tankers. The Navy said the video was recorded by a US aircraft and that it shows an “IRGC Gashti-class patrol boat removing an unexploded limpet mine from M/T Kokuka Courageous.” The 21 crew of the Courageous were rescued by the USS Bainbridge, the Navy said. The crew of the other vessel damaged, the Norwegian tanker Front Altair, were rescued by a South Korean cargo ship, the Hyundai Dubai. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it was “the assessment of the US government that Iran is responsible” for the attacks, which he described as “a threat to international peace and security.” Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, said the US allegations were without “a shred of factual or circumstantial evidence.” Credit: US Navy via Storyful
