After much turmoil, Iran has officially declined that it was behind the explosion on an Israeli cargo ship in the Gulf of Oman. The Israeli cargo ship had suffered damages due to the explosion that happened last week. The incident had left 2 holes on both the port side and the starboard side of the ship.
False Flag Operation
The Iranian ambassador in the United Nations has issued a letter denying the charges. Iran also said that Israel is playing the victim card to distract people from its malign practices and destabilising acts. Iran has termed the blast hit MV Helios Ray ship as a “complicated false flag operation.”
The Iran Ambassador, Majid Takht Ravanchi said “ it has all the characteristics of a complicated false flag operation by actors in order to pursue their malign policies and to advance their illegitimate objectives.”
Damages Created from Inside the Ship
Recently, a Lebanon news network has revealed how the incident has created holes on the ship. The video was recorded by Iranian drones.
The holes “were not created by an external attack, but some individuals inside the ship created the holes in order to indicate that the ship was attacked,” said the news network report. The alleged ship had entered the Persian Gulf region before. It’s not prudent to attack an Israeli ship with elections coming up in the country, says the report.
