Israel says it appears Iran behind ship attack

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said on Saturday that according to "initial assessment," Iran was behind the explosion on an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman en route to Singapore from Dammam in Saudi Arabia.

"Iran is looking to hit Israeli infrastructure and Israeli citizens. The location of the ship in relative close proximity to Iran raises the notion, the assessment, that it is the Iranians," Gantz explained.

However, Gantz added that a full investigation will be conducted despite his initial assessment.
