Israel has accused Iran of being behind an attack on an oil tanker in which two crew members were killed.
The tanker, operated by the London-based company Zodiac Maritime, was off Oman’s coast in the Arabian Sea when the incident occurred on Thursday.
The company, which belongs to Israeli shipping magnate Eyal Ofer, said it was working to establish what had happened.
But Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid on Friday blamed “Iranian terrorism”.
in a statement, Mr Lapid said ”Iran is not just an Israeli problem, the world must not be silent.”
However, details of the attack on the Liberian-flagged, Japanese-owned tanker remain unclear.
Iran has not yet commented on the allegations.
