Click to see full-size image

On August 10, an explosion occurred on a commercial ship moored in the Syrian port of Latakia. As a result, a fire broke out on board.

The Syrian rescue teams reported that the fire was eliminated. At the time of the incident, the ship was empty, but several crew members were slightly injured due to fire and smoke on board. According to preliminary data, two port workers were injured. Considerable material damage was also reported.

According to SANA, the fire on the ship occurred during repair work. According to the general director of the Latakia seaport, the ship was not loaded and arrived at the port for repairs. The injured were poisoned by carbon monoxide and were hospitalized.

Amid the on-going game of battleship in the Arabian Sea, some media speculated that the ship was Iranian-owned.However, these claims are yet to be confirmed.

The cause of the blast is still unknown.

It appears to be some sort of accident on a empty ship of no real consequence, so unless the Zionists are totally desperate, it is highly unlikely that they would strike close to a Russian naval base. However, they have major problems coming up as Iran has just appointed a very hardline revolutionary Foreign Minister.

Iran’s tipped top diplomat no friend of US, Israel or JCPOA
Dr. Hossein Amir-Abdollahian is widely expected to bring a new hardline to the Islamic Republic’s foreign relations. He holds a PhD in international relations with a dissertation of revolutionary aspects of anti-imperialist diplomacy from Tehran University. He has held ambassadorial posts in Bahrain and is an expert on Persian Gulf Sheikhdoms and Saudi Arabia. He is also stated to have spent considerable time with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

What was the name of this commercial ship?

the hypocritical western voices are all silent right now how suprising but their voices wont matter in future anymore after the show they delivered this time around

According to Israeli source, Wisdom.
If so, it’s a relatively small (~46,000 DWT, so carries about 200k barrels maybe?) oil/chemical tanker, used before to unload and carry crude/oil products from Iranian LCCs and VLCCs near Syrian shores into ports like Banyas. Sails under Panama flag.

If there was a cargo it would be too difficult -or even impossible- to extinguish the fire so quickly.

Also, strange choice for a target if we believe this incident is the result of an Israeli revenge or something because currently there’s a bigger Iranian crude tanker nearby (Sam 121) which is definitely full and carries over 500,000 barrels of oil. If they are behind this fire, why didn’t they attack our ship?

Or, maybe the last “worst environment disaster ever” along the entirety of occupied shores taught them a lesson? As if they are capable of learning from their mistakes…

Haven’t seen you in comment’s for a while. Good to see you back with us. I’m curious to hear your analogy of the new President in Iran.

Garga

Thank you Jim.
I check SF main page once in a day or two to see if there’s something interesting to read. About a month ago I wrote a comment and noticed it said the comment is waiting to be moderated so I checked a day later and saw the comment didn’t publish, so I stopped commenting till yesterday.

About president Raisi, I see a lot of people call him a hard-liner which is astonishingly ignorant. He is a serious, no-nonsense kind of a man which does what he says and says what he thinks which is refreshing. Ahmadinejad in his last years established a phenomenon in our politics which was very rare before, and that is looking people in the eye and lie about the most obvious things. Rouhani made this into an art form, to a point where nobody believed anything he said or worse, expected the exact opposite. God knows we all supported Rouhani and gave him more power than any president before him, so the burnt ground which he left behind is our collective responsibility.
Raisi faces a huge challenge. Even after the revolution or during the war the country wasn’t in such disarray because then nobody in power was actively trying to ruin it. It suffices to say if we put a child with a coin in Rouhani’s place and told him to make decisions by “heads and tails” it was better than Rouhani, because there was a %50 chance that the child made the right decision while Rouhani made %100 bad ones. You look at anything, anything at all and it’s broken (unless it is not the responsibility of administration). From the treasury (not only empty, but negative because Rouhani not only used the whole budget of the year in 4 months, he sold bonds payable in 2-5 years and made a salary increase spree for state employees which will start a month after he left the office), water, electricity, Covid, space program, roads to basic necessities like cooking oil, wheat and livestock food. Even the new Goreh-Jask pipeline which by-passes the straight of Hormuz was rushed for a loud opening while it wasn’t ready and running oil in it at this stage causes future complications (we had such rushed openings of incomplete projects in the last weeks of Rafsanjani and Ahmadinejad too). Still, in his last public torturing (ehem, I mean public speech) he said his admin was the best Iran had since the Achimenedes!

Anyway, Raisi is to introduce his cabinet the next week (our week which starts on Saturday). He had meetings with the whole spectrum of political establishment and uses even his rivals in the presidential elections (one of which was elected as the mayor of Tehran by the new city council). I hope he chooses his people based on their merits and talents, not political affiliation which somehow translates into he has to get rid of almost all the people Rouhani brought in. He is putting great emphasis on our immediate neighbours, then the ring of countries bordering them (including China and Russia), all of them were ignored before. He has to take care of the pandemic situation, make some real changes and enforce the decisions. We are now in the middle of the fifth pick, the worst since the beginning and we loose about 500 people daily.

In short, the situation here is pretty bleak. The treasury empty and the middle and low management resisting changes but based on his past, Raisi can make a difference. A large portion of population will do whatever in their power to help him and more will follow when the results of his actions kick in. Somethings can indicate change in short term while other decisions need more time.
We’ll know the the first results of his short term decisions maybe in 10 days or two weeks.

And one more thing. I don’t know what to say because there are a lot of issues. I try to answer any questions you might have, so don’t hesitate to ask.
Take care.

Israel and USA are too scared of Iran, they would attack even a Russian or Chinese commercial ship rather than Iranian.

Ivan Freely

Too scared? No. Have you already forgotten about the assassinations of Chinese and Russian ambassadors / diplomats? In the past, there have been numerous explosions inside China on their factories and infrastructures. The 2015 Tianjin explosion was the largest among them.

US & EU are Zion slaves

“The cause of the blast is still unknown.”
“According to SANA, the fire on the ship occurred during repair work.”
“the ship was not loaded and arrived at the port for repairs”

We aren’t talking SANA words for it?

we will hit america with plasma weapons you dont believe me wait and see i said last year during the same time when we hit america with plasma particle emitter beam weapon or how you can call that stratosphere weapon but iran has technology which is materializing plasma inside the atmosphere without using tension caused plasma via hypersonic speeds

farbat

aaanyway to make things short wait for strange plasma storms causing huge damage over an area inside america repeated plasma storms inside america which will be artificial and maybe blamed on aliens even and know the tests were successful but at the same time its just an amplifier and america must have figured it out that somebody is doing this or they are very stupid

america will without a doubt try to stop the mess in some way and maybe be even blamed for it going out of control because its never easy to have a foresight for all possible consequences but it might get a special spectacle this year around but i might be also kidding with you and somebody else will do that somebody closer to where you are in fact but either way you should not underestimate your enemies as you do because iran could do so many things to you that you would not even know iran did so those who keep their hostilities up arent going to stay around for long

you think iam kidding with you and that storms arent possibly going to be weaponized and on top plasma storms sound absurd right just like plasma particle emitter wave or beam weapons sound absurd maybe i dont know maybe all the technology has a glitch right maybe it telling these things happening is just wrong or maybe its all aliens who knows because america has doubts that any human beings are capable to wreck it so badly with this kind of technology

an eye for an eye means that this will continue until you zionists cant bare it anymore and our strategic depth is far beyond that of what you can get together and remember the next war will be your last

An explosion during repairs. That happens all the time in all sorts of situations and places.

Peter Wallace

Fuk off you Lying piece of shit. You have no qualifications to tell me anything.I told you before until you have been in a war and been shot and killed people you are in no position to tell me anything. You are nothing but an annoying mosquito that needs to be sprayed so fuk off. LIAR , TROLL and SCUM.

Chess Master

LOL how many mosquitos did you kill?

Peter Wallace

Quite a few but not as many as people if that matters.

Russia collapse

Russia collapse

Stalin starved 30 million Russians to death.Worry about that Russian ba$tard

Ashok Varma

Russia collapse

Yazeed ne Hussain ki maa behen ekkar di thi 😂😂

Peter Wallace

Stalin is long dead just as King Leopold who is responsible for the most deaths in Africa is also dead. Mugabe had no problem murdering his own to maintain his position but he is also dead as are many other former leaders that butchered their way while in power. The dead are not coming back so it is the living butchers that one needs to worry about.

G2 Man

SIPRI which is a Swedish based western think tank and geo-strategic analysis organization has calculated based on open sources that US, British and NATO forces since 1945 have killed over 20-25 million people in their imperialist resource grab wars from Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea, Vietnam, Africa, Latin America, China and now endless wars in the Middle East for OIL and ZIONISM.
