A drone strike damaged a merchant ship in the Indian Ocean but caused no casualties, two maritime agencies said as per news agency AFP. One vessel was linked to Israel.
British military's United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations and maritime security firm Ambrey said that a merchant vessel was stuck by unmanned aerial vehicle off India's Verval.
The “Liberia-flagged chemical/products tanker... was Israel-affiliated”, it said, adding, “Some structural damage was also reported and some water was taken onboard. The vessel was Israel-affiliated. She had last called Saudi Arabia and was destined for India at the time.”
