US 'Confident' Iran is Behind Mercer Street Tanker Attack, Vows 'Appropriate Response'

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett claimed earlier that Tel Aviv has evidence proving that Tehran was behind the attack on an oil tanker, Mercer Street, on 30 July off the Omani island of Masirah.

The US is confident that Iran was behind the attack on the Mercer Street oil tanker off Oman's coast on 30 July, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has stated, citing "available information". He added that there could be no justification for this act and vowed an "appropriate response" by the US without delving into specifics.

"Upon review of the available information, we are confident that Iran conducted this attack, which killed two innocent people, using one-way explosive UAVs, a lethal capability it is increasingly employing throughout the region", Blinken said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember when the US was confident Iraq had nuclear weapons?

Remember when the US was confident there were torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin?

Remember when the US was confident there was a Spanish mine in Havana harbor?

This is just more of the same.
