Strange things have been happening at sea recently.
Earlier this year an Israeli-owned cargo ship, the MV Helios, was badly damaged while transiting the Gulf of Oman. Two large holes were ripped in its hull and Israel swiftly blamed Iran's IRGC.
Iran denied any involvement. In April the Saviz, an Iranian vessel anchored in the southern Red Sea, suffered damage to its hull believed to have been caused by limpet mines.
Israel and the Saudi-led Coalition in nearby Yemen believe the Saviz has been serving as a logistic "mothership" for Iran's Houthi allies in Yemen.
Speedboats, machine-guns and sophisticated communication aerials have been spotted onboard but Iran says it is there for peaceful, legitimate purposes and blames Israel for the attack.
US media reports say that over the past 18 months Israeli forces have targeted at least 12 ships bound for Syria, carrying Iranian oil and military supplies.
Car carrier HYPERION RAY, belonging reportedly, to Israeli businessman Rami Ungeru, who’s specializing among other things, in cars trade and sea transportations, was attacked in Arabian sea off Fujairah UAE.
The ship was hit by either missile or drone, at the time of attack she was, according to track, under way, near Fujairah anchorage.
The ship arrived at Fujairah anchorage at night Apr 12 from Kuwait, and moved to anchorage outer limit early in the morning Apr 13.
As of 1540 UTC Apr 13, ship’s AIS was missing during 10 hours.
Latest AIS positions and records identify her as "stopped" or anchored.
The ship didn’t sustain serious damages, nobody was injured. Israel is already blaming Iran, alleging it was a retaliation after recent incident in Iranian nuclear facility.
