Reliable sources told Al-Mayadeen today, Saturday, that "a fire erupted in an Israeli cargo ship in the northern Indian Ocean," stressing that "the Israeli merchant ship was hit by an unknown weapon."

The sources revealed that "the Israeli ship was anchored in the port of Jeddah before moving towards the Emirati coast," stressing that "no one has claimed responsibility for this targeting so far."

"It is remarkable that the incident comes a day after news of an Israeli drone attack west of Tehran," the source said.

The same sources said that "Iranian media had reported on June 23 that a drone attack targeted a building in the city of Karaj and that the targeted building that was talked about is located near the organization that produced the first Iranian Coronavirus vaccine."
