Iran accuses Israel of being responsible for an attack on a container ship in the Mediterranean



 Iranian media quoted an Iranian investigator as saying on Saturday that Israel was likely behind the attack in the Mediterranean last week that damaged an Iranian container ship.


Israeli officials did not comment on Friday when asked whether Israel had a role in the incident, which occurred on Wednesday.


Iran said on Friday that the container ship Shahrekord was hit by an explosive charge that caused a small fire but no one was injured on its back. Two marine security sources said that the initial indications indicated that the ship was deliberately targeted from an unknown source.


The semi-official Noor News Agency quoted an unnamed member of the Iranian team investigating the incident as saying, "Given the geographical location and the manner in which the ship was targeted, one of the strong possibilities is that this terrorist operation was carried out by the Zionist regime (Israel)."


Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said today, Saturday, that the reports confirmed the occurrence of a sabotage attack "in clear violation of international law."


The official media quoted him as saying, "Procedures for identifying the perpetrators of this sabotage act are on our agenda."
