The cargo ship that was attacked in the northern Indian ocean on July 3 has been identified as the Liberian-flagged CSAV TYNDALL.
Many sources, including the al-Mayadin TV that was the first to report the attack, claimed that the ship was owned by an Israeli firm. This claim turned out to be inaccurate.
CSAV TYNDALL was previously owned by the London-based Zodiac Maritime which is owned by Israeli billionaire shipping magnate Eyal Ofer. However, earlier this year, the cargo ship was sold to JPMorgan Chase investment bank which leased it to the Danish Maersk Line.
The ship was possibly hit by a missile. Despite sustaining serious damage as a result of the attack it continued its journey and it is currently anchored at Jebel Ali Port in the UAE.
Israeli defense sources told the N12 TV that they are checking if Iranian forces were behind the alleged attack on CSAV TYNDALL.
Sources with knowledge on the incident told the al-Mayadin TV that the attack on the cargo ship might be related to a sabotage attempt that targeted a building of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) in Karaj city, near the capital Tehran on June 23.
Israel and Iran have been exchanging sabotage attacks for a while now. The attack on CSAV TYNDALL was likely just another episode of this covert war.
