Iranian MP blames Israel for Fujairah incident

Behrouz Nemati, a member of the Iranian parliament, put the blame on Israel on Tuesday for the incidents that occurred on Sunday at the port of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

"The events that took place in the Emirates were Israeli mischief," he said, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). The parliament issued a statement yesterday in the day saying that another country might have been caused the incident.

On the other hand, a United States military team believes that Iran or Iran-backed proxies are behind the attacks, which the UAE has called "sabotage."

It was reported last week that Israel warned the United States of Iran's alleged plot to attack its interests in the Gulf, after Washington deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln carrier group along with a bomber task force to the Persian Gulf to "send a message" to Tehran.
