Iranian Spy Vessel Hit By Naval Mine In Red Sea: Report

•, by Tyler Durden

Fellow Elizabeth Tsurkov, of the Newlines Institute for Strategy and Policy, responded to Ali's tweet by saying: "Israel did." 

Tsurkov's theory is certainly interesting, considering The Wall Street Journal revealed last month that Israeli intelligence has been waging its own tanker sabotage campaign against the Iranians over the past two years. 

"Israel has targeted at least a dozen vessels bound for Syria and mostly carrying Iranian oil out of concern that petroleum profits are funding extremism in the Middle East, the US and regional officials say, in a new front in the conflict between Israel and Iran," the WSJ wrote last month.

It remains to be seen who is responsible for the Saviz attack, but we should note the incident occurred during the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) meeting in Vienna today as top world powers began a new effort to bring the US back into the 2015 nuclear deal they signed with Iran.
