A cargo ship owned by Israeli XT Management has suffered damage after being hit by a missile as it was sailing way from Tanzania to India.
According to local media, the ship’s owner was notified of the attack and that a decision was made to allow the vessel to continue its journey to its destination in India, where it will reportedly undergo repairs.
The report did not include the name of the ship that had been damaged by the missile.
The Israeli military is investigating the incident, and Reuters cited the Foreign Ministry as saying that they are checking the report about the attack on the vessel.
The incident with XT Management’s vessel took place a month after two blasts believed to be of Iranian origin damaged the hull of another Israeli-owned ship, MV Helios Ray, as it sailed through the Gulf of Oman. The attack left the ship with two hull breaches above the waterline but did not affect its crew.
