According to sources, a powerful explosion initially occurred, after which the tanker was engulfed in flames, which indicates a version of a special explosion of the tanker, as was already observed last year.
Despite the absence of any official statements about who exactly is behind the destruction of the oil tanker, which, reportedly, belongs to the Republic of Korea, but flies under the flag of Panama, it was suggested that we could again talk about Iran, especially that Seoul had previously stated its readiness to send its warships to the Strait of Hormuz to demonstrate strength to Iran.
It is noteworthy that on board the oil “supertanker” there were no large oil reserves – according to a number of sources, the sea vessel was in this area for a very long time, and therefore, a lot of questions arise about who is behind what and for what purpose attack on the tanker.
It’s unknown how serious the damages are.
