US blames Iran for oil tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman
The United States held on Friday Iran responsible for the attacks against oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
US President Donald Trump rejected Tehran’s denial it was behind mysterious explosions on the two oil tankers, saying the incident had Iran “written all over it.”
Speaking hours after the US military released grainy footage it said showed an Iranian patrol boat removing an “unexploded limpet mine” from one of the tankers, Trump was emphatic.
“Iran did do it,” Trump told the “Fox and Friends” show. “You know they did it because you saw the boat. I guess one of the mines didn’t explode and it’s probably got essentially Iran written all over it.”
“You saw the boat at night, successfully trying to take the mine off — and that was exposed,” he added.
