“The attack on the Israeli ship in the Gulf of Oman is revenge for the resistance against the recent Israeli attacks and crimes in the region,” the Iranian newspaper “Kayhan,” close to the Supreme Leader, reported.
Under the heading “Crimes in Syria and Iraq and the Response in Yemen and the Sea of Oman” on the front page, the newspaper close to the Iranian guide, Ali Khamenei, added that “it is possible that the ship was ambushed by one of the forces affiliated with the resistance axis.” It proves the fact that the time to hit and run has passed. ”
The newspaper said in its report: “It seems that the attacks and crimes of the Zionist regime in the region, which have become public in recent times, have finally turned this regime into a legitimate target … A ship, possibly a warship of this regime, was professionally targeted in the Sea of Oman, which confused The Zionist regime and its allies. ”
And she continued: “In recent months the United States and the Zionist regime have intensified their attacks on the axis of resistance in Iraq and Syria, and sometimes in Yemen, and some have even claimed responsibility for this openly,” adding, “Perhaps these serial attacks have made the Zionist regime live in an illusion so that it does not take the warnings of the resistance.” Seriously.”
The newspaper said: “But what happened in the Sea of Oman on Thursday morning, regardless of who did, was very professional, to the extent that the Zionist regime will likely come out of the illusion in which it lives … on the other hand, in addition to its support for the aggressors in Yemen and the terrorists in Syria.” And Iraq, the United States bombed resistance sites in these two countries, so these crimes prompted the axis of resistance to intensify its revenge operations and strike American forces from time to time.
“Kayhan” pointed out that “the identification of the ship that was intended to appear as belonging to the British Navy, and that it was pretended to be carrying a commercial cargo, and striking it in a way that did not cause any injuries indicates that its targeting was done cleanly and professionally.”
The newspaper concluded that “the proximity of the ship’s owner to the head of the Mossad enhances the possibility of it carrying out a spying mission in the Gulf.
After establishing relations with the UAE and Bahrain, the Zionist regime seeks to strengthen its presence in the Gulf to pursue its crimes against the resistance further. ”
This statement coincides with investigations conducted by an Israeli security delegation that arrived in Dubai yesterday, Saturday.
While no party has admitted responsibility for this incident, Tel Aviv points the finger of blame at Tehran.
In this regard, Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that his “initial assessment that Iran” was behind the ship’s attack.

London-based Dryad Global said, “The ship in question is the MV Helios Rai, a vehicle transport vessel owned by Helios Rai Ltd. An Israeli company registered on the Isle of Man. The ship was en route to Singapore from Dammam. In Saudi Arabia.
