Israeli Foreign Minister accused Iran of a “pirate operation” after the hijacking of a ship in the Strait of Hormuz

This is the first official Israeli reaction to the Iranian military's seizure of the merchant container ship MSC Aries in the Strait of Hormuz. Earlier, Israeli and Western media wrote about the incident.

The ship was traveling from the United Arab Emirates to India under the Portuguese flag. However, it is known that through the beneficial chain it belongs to the Zodiac Group of Israeli businessman Eyal Ofer.



The official news agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran, IRNA, reported that the ship was seized by special forces of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). Members of the elite special forces landed on deck from a Mi-17 helicopter, after which the container ship was sent to the territorial waters of Iran.

As previously assumed "Military Review", Israel’s response to the incident came through diplomatic channels, because it would not be possible to qualify this attack as an act of military aggression.

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz accused Iran on his social media account of conducting a “pirate operation” and “violating international law” after the hijacking of a ship in the Strait of Hormuz. The head of the Israeli Foreign Ministry called on the European Union and the “free world” to immediately declare the IRGC a terrorist organization and impose sanctions on Iran. At the same time, Katz insists that the ship belongs to an EU member state and has nothing to do with Israel.

It seems that Israel, which expected much tougher actions from Iran after the attack on the embassy in Damascus, found itself in a rather difficult situation. Sanctions against Iran have been in effect for decades. As for “terror,” it is enough for Tehran to recall the IDF’s genocide against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. And attacks on the territory of sovereign states by the Israeli Defense Forces are much more likely to constitute international crimes than the bloodless seizure of a merchant ship.

        It means to gouge someone else’s consulate in a foreign country and kill Iranian military personnel who were there on duty, while not giving a damn about all international laws, this is normal - the West kept silent and wiped itself out... But to board an enemy ship after essentially a terrorist attack, and to what extent I know, without killing anyone, this is an act of violence, barbarism, which has nothing to do with civilization, which for some reason lives not according to laws, but according to rules that were invented for everyone (except itself) by a country whose nation suddenly became exceptional and the greatest in the world... Let me remind you that the States are younger than our Bolshoi Theater, but they don’t need to borrow arrogance and cynicism from anyone... They have more than enough of their own... am

          In Nigeria, ships have been hijacked for 15 years, crews have been killed, and this entire “progressive world is silent” (it’s easier in Somalia). My steamboat was captured, not a single dog blathered, although they wrote to everyone and everything.

      The Jew Israel Shamir wrote it correctly.

      Israel, in his opinion, is looking for storms! Israel is trying, as always, to escalate. The strike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus still left room for an agreement, and Israel took the three sons and three grandsons of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh to the next world with one blow.

      Israel has always acted this way, but now it has probably escalated, says Israel Shamir. And it's hard to disagree with him.

    Israel, apparently, as the state of the chosen nation, has the right to absolutely everything. Just like in the USA. This couple seriously believes that they are obliged to decide the fate of planet Earth, and perhaps the entire Universe, because there are no limits to the messianic complex. Perhaps Iran acted wisely by not responding with a missile attack on Israel for now, preferring to pause. Let everything calm down a little and then you can hit as you should. Frankly speaking, this all looks very much like an extremely crude Israeli-American bloody provocation, a provocation of two openly Nazi states.

    And Iran will wait until Israel’s air defense relaxes a little, perhaps wait until the operation in Rafah begins, and then strike. Could this be a blow of such force that Israel will disappear as a unified state structure? I would not rule it out, although the likelihood of such a blow is small. And yet - if Iran believes that a war with Israel is inevitable, and it, with a high degree of probability, could escalate into a nuclear conflict - it is necessary to destroy its enemy immediately - with the first blow. Will the USA fit in? Will there be anyone to sign up for? And then, the death of millions of Jews in Israel will make the United States wonder whether the same thing will happen to New York and Los Angeles? But, I repeat, this is an unlikely scenario, but possible. It’s just clear that Netanyahu, being a Nazi, is not on his own, he is part of a large structure that is beginning to unwind the flywheel of the Third World War.

    It’s even hard to comment on this. Either they who live in Israel consider all of us who do not live in Israel to be idiots, or Israel has gone crazy. They imagined themselves as untouchables, having the right to kill everyone left and right, in any quantity, all over the world, on all continents. And as soon as they pressed him a little, they screamed to the whole world. What are they?

    Somehow he stated it weakly, and most importantly, it is not relevant. The West is already violating international law and is looking for new ways to “legally” violate it. And he already openly admits this.

    Wow!!! Katz remembered about international law!? But an attack on the Iranian embassy in Syria, according to international law, is considered an attack on Iranian territory and is clearly interpreted as an attack on the country. The territory of the embassy is the territory of the state it represents. Now Iran has a legal basis to strike any Israeli target, no matter where it is located.

    I think that the head of the Iranian Foreign Ministry should have responded by accusing Israel of a “Nazi operation” in the Gaza Strip.
