The Pentagon declares no involvement in the attack on an Iranian ship in the Red Sea

61

The United States has nothing to do with the incident with the Iranian ship Saviz in the Red Sea. This was stated by the representative of the Pentagon Jessica McNulty.


According to McNulty, the Pentagon can confirm that the US military was not involved in the attack on the Iranian ship, but, at the same time, "can not provide any additional information."

In turn, the American media reported that Iran confirmed the attack on the ship, it is assumed that it was attacked by Israel in response to Iranian attacks by Israeli ships. The New York Times cites an anonymous source who said that Tel Aviv allegedly notified Washington of the strike on the Iranian ship.

(...) the Israelis called the attack retaliation for previous Iranian strikes on Israeli ships and that the Saviz was damaged below the waterline

- writes NYT.

Iran itself has confirmed the damage to the Saviz, but the reason is not officially named. According to the Iranian media, a missile attack was carried out on the vessel, another version says that a magnetic mine was triggered. The incident took place in the Red Sea.

The vessel Saviz, originally built as a dry cargo ship, has been converted into a floating base and has been part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) naval forces since 2017. According to unofficial information, the vessel is equipped with radio-electronic means for observation and command and control of troops, as well as other equipment. In addition, it is the carrier of floating craft of different classes, including remotely controlled fireboats.

The Saviz is accused of providing aid to the Houthis, and the ship appears frequently off the coast of Yemen.

The vessel's precise location in the Red Sea was not immediately clear.

              Yes, because the "professor", firstly, did not immediately disavow, in his opinion, the inconsistency of articles, with the mention of Tel Aviv as the capital (administrative center) of Israel, "ignoring it," and secondly, this is not the first time when he demonstrates blatant illiteracy, moreover, in elementary things.

                And Iran is being killed only because Iran deserves it.
                For the official state documented program of Iran is the complete destruction of the state of Israel.

                It would always be interesting to me that uryakalka and anti-Semites from Russia would say that, for example, Azerbaijan adopted an official state documented program for the complete destruction of the state of Russia and for this would openly and covertly develop a nuclear program, a rocket program, etc. etc.

          If a mine, then the counterattacks of mice, or rather saboteurs are not caught! You can't put a mine on the go ... however, I'm far from such things, maybe you've learned?

          So we are guessing, but they would have said nothing from the satellites, it means a mine ...

          As well as the downed Boeing. Here we see, but there we do not see, probably the Boeing also ran into a mine.

      Well, yes, there were no satellites again ...

      All there are satellites, and naval special forces, and a response to any action against Israel.

    If amerigos - it means a priori to blame. For nothing is done by the "exceptional" in the BV and in the Red Sea, except as a provocation. The Iranians need to drown them all, otherwise they have already been cut off.

    The haste with which the Americans denied their involvement already suggests that they were interested in this. And it doesn't matter by whose hands it was done, Jewish or by some other, but it certainly could not have done without American participation.

        Arab media:
        Putin considers slamming door in Iran and opening a window for Israel
        The meeting took place in January between Syrian and Israeli officials at a Russian base near Latakia in western Syria.
        Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov promised the Israeli leadership: "If you have facts that your state is facing threats from Syrian territory, immediately report these facts, and we will take all measures to neutralize the threat."

        Well, as you know, Israel itself can neutralize threats, both in Syria and elsewhere.
        I will not give examples, you periodically discuss them.
