Iran is suspected of having fired the missile at another Israeli-owned cargo ship on Thursday; The ship’s damage will be reviewed upon arrival to its original destination.
While en route to India after departing from the African country of Tanzania, another Israeli cargo ship was struck in the Arabian Sea by what is reported to have been an Iranian missile. The ship belongs to XT Management, a company based in Haifa, Israel, and was damaged in the attack. However, the crew plans to arrive at its final destination before evaluating the extent of the damage.
