Iran: Oil tankers reportedly attacked in Gulf of Oman - Iranian state TV

June 13, 2019 at 12:07 (GMT) · Published

Two Japanese oil tanks were reportedly hit in suspected attacks on Thursday, off the Iranian coast, in the Gulf of Oman, forcing the evacuation of both ships' crews.

According to reports, Japan's Trade Ministry have confirmed the two vessels were carrying "Japan-related cargo" at the time of the attack.

Reports also put the tankers in the same area where the US accused Iran of attacking other oil ships with naval mines in the previous month.

Iran's FM Javad Zarif posted in English on his Twitter account: "Reported attacks on Japan-related tankers occurred while PM @AbeShinzo was meeting with Ayatollah @khamenei_ir for extensive and friendly talks. Suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning. Iran's proposed Regional Dialogue Forum is imperative."
