Explosion hits Israeli-owned cargo ship in Gulf of Oman


Crew reported safe and vessel heads to the nearest port as circumstances of the explosion remain unclear.




An explosion has struck an Israeli-owned ship near the strategic mouth of the Gulf, the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) and a maritime security firm said on Friday.

The crew and vessel were safe, according to the UKMTO, which is run by the British navy. The explosion forced the Bahamas-flagged ship, the MV Helios Ray, to head to the nearest port.


The incident occurred at 20:40 GMT on Thursday, the UKMTO said, but gave no details about a possible cause.

“Vessels transiting the area are advised to exercise caution,” it said.

The US Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet was “aware and monitoring” the situation, Commander Rebecca Rebarich told The Associated Press news agency. She declined to immediately comment further.

The British maritime organisation gave the ship’s last position as off the coast of Muscat, the capital of Oman.

Maritime security firm Dryad Global said the MV Helios Ray was a vehicle carrier owned by Helios Ray Ltd, an Israeli firm registered in the Isle of Man. The ship was en route to Singapore from Dammam in Saudi Arabia.

While the circumstances of the explosion remain unclear, Dryad Global said the blast might have stemmed from “asymmetric activity by Iranian military,” which it said would be “commensurate” with heightened regional tensions.

Israel’s Transportation Ministry said it was not aware of the incident.

As Iran seeks to pressure the US to lift sanctions and return to the 2015 nuclear accord, the country may seek “to exercise forceful diplomacy through military means,” the Dryad report said.

According to Israel Kan radio, the targeted ship belongs to a close friend of MOSAD chief.

Iranian sources have marked it as an undercover military ship of Israel army and containing latest intelligence gathering equipments.

The fact that it has docked in Saudi Arabian port is yet another sign of Saudi Arabia and Israel undercover cooperations.

Very silly mistake from the Irani fascist regime. The reprisal will be ten fold from Israel. Looking forward to seeing how many Iranian assets are liquidated in response.
