Two Saudi tankers with oil for US among 4 ships “sabotaged” in UAE waters off Fujairah

Two of the four cargo ships sabotaged on Sunday, May 12, off Fujairah were oil tankers, said Saudi energy minister Khalid al-Falih on Monday., calling the attack “a threat to the security of global oil supplies.”  One was on its way to be loaded with Saudi crude from the port of Ras Tanura for delivery to Saudi Aramco’s customers in the United States, he said in a statement, adding there were no casualties or an oil spill, only substantial damage to the ships’ structure. Falih did not mention the vessels’ ownership.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Monday postponed his trip to Russia without explanation and headed straight for Brussels for talks with US NATO allies on the crisis with Iran.

On Sunday night, the UAE Foreign Ministry in Abu Dhabi reported that four cargo ships were hit by “sabotage operations” earlier that day near UAE waters off the Fujairah emirate. The UAE Foreign Ministry in Abu Dhabi reported that no injuries or spillage of harmful chemicals or fuel had occurred, indicating that the ships were fuel tankers. Work continued as usual at Fujairah port, the statement said. Neither the Saudi nor the UAE statements cited the perpetrator of the “sabotage attack” or its nature.

The UAE had denied an earlier report by local media of “heavy explosions” at the port of Fujairah early Sunday. According to first reports US and French warplanes were flowing overhead at the time and from 7 to 10 oil tankers are in flames. The UAE is currently expanding the port to hold the world’s largest crude oil storage facility, capable of storing up to 14 million barrels of oil.

DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources reported that despite the careful omissions in the official statements, it is obvious that Gulf oil and gas shipping came under attack from a party in the region. The obvious candidate is Iran, whose Revolutionary Guards and their fleet are fully capable of carrying out Tehran’s first major reprisal for US sanctions on its oil exports. From the Saudi statement that the oil on one of the stricken ships attacked in UAE waters was destined for “customers in the United States, ” it may be inferred that Tehran found a way to vent itself on two if not three of its enemies with a single blow.  Iranian officials have declared that if Tehran can’t export its oil, neither will anyone else. Washington has so far made no response to this attack. A statement may be expected after Pompeo’s talks in Brussels. O Tuesday, he is due to make his delayed visit Sochi for talks with President Vladimir Putin.

    It could be an Israeli false flag to start a war after all Israel for years has been trying to get US to attack Iran and recently has supplied US with some false information about Iranian proxies planning to attack Al-Tanf just what Trump and neo cons in his inner circle need. One has to be stupid to attack the US forces right now The only one who will benefit will be Israel and Israel may do it and blame it on Iran.

      Taz…..Israel does not need to Provoke a Clandestine Attack on other Gulf States to try and have other Nations Respond and Attack Iran. The entire Midde East was alerted by American CIA already knowing Iran was Preparing Attacks.

      Additionally, the Iranian Shiia Regime said it would do so as an Opportunity and not a Threat? Israel is already on Alert as well to defend itself on all 3 Borders.

      Moreover, the Iranians are in an Economic Embargo Corner and it was the Iranian Robe Regime that put them there, no one else. They can continue to Ponder if Huffing, Puffing and Bluffing continues or they can decide to Open Up Talks for a New Agreement.

      Finally, “No One Respects”, Iran’s Leaders and more importantly, “No One Fears”, them either, except their own People that are having their own Plans when the Right Time Comes?

      The Bottom Line, the Gulf States, Israel, and the World have the Power to Watch and Wait, but Iran Does Not Such Time, and the Regime is surrounded on Global Isolation Borrowed Time, Well Deserved and Overdue?

        A Nigerian prophet once said in 1989 that he saw in the distant future, an Iran that was destroyed by military battle. In the same year, that is 1989, the same man said that in a matter of years, Iraq would be invaded and we saw that happen in operation desert storm of 1991 or so. Iran should beware, lest we see a fulfilment of this prophecy sooner or later.

      They have never NOT failed in Lebanon–occupied it with the help of Nazis for a few years (typical); retreated in 2000. Got blown to smithereens in 2006.

        Taz, your knowledge of History is inaccurate, incomplete, misleading with false.conclusions. Many people deliberately attacked the US Navy and lost. The USS Liberty was attacked by mistake during the Israel 1967 war with Egypt, Syria and Jordan. The Liberty incident was not deliberate, as was determined by both Israel and American investigators. The attack on the USS Cole in Yemen by Terrorists was deliberate and many of those responsible are no longer threats. FYI, to help your understanding of History, America fought the British for Independence, American fought Americans in the Civil War which ended slavery, Germany and Japan attacked American Ships during WWII and were defeated and unconditionally surrendered. My advice to your Mullahs is not to test the US Navy.

          Israel never made a MISTAKE….the USS Liberty was clearly marked and the IDF
          was warned off. The IDF had observed the ship for some time and had overflown
          it before DELIBERATELY attacking it. The problem for the IDF was that that failed
          to sink it and kill all the USN sailors…

It is more of an Opportunity to Unite the Entire Middle East and World in knowing Iran can’t acquire Nuclear Weapons, is Untrustworthy, and the Lone Rogue Globally that will gather Consensus that the Shiia Regime must be removed in a Worldwide Collective Effort! Iran can give a Punch but in the End it will be Knocked Out doing it and be Punching Itself for their Horrible Behavior since 1979. Iran is making a Big Miscalculation!

    USA is almost self-sufficient with respect to energy all thanks to Trump who saved the US from the Dems energy-destruction plans. If these reports are true, then it’s time for the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudi, and all the other Arabs to fight for themselves with their billions of acquired weapons instead of using the USA as its mercenary as they sit back and plan more Mosques in America and Canada to make us as viciously evil as they are and to replace Western civilization with an Americanized form of Islam under people like Tlaib and Omar and Cortez along with leftists Bolshevik Bernie, Cohen, Nadler, Blumenthal, Schiff, Schumer, and the freak-show lineup of Dem candidates.

These countries and their terror proxies have plenty of land, resources, manpower, and blessed with a sea of oil beneath their sands. Iran is an evil regime expanding and creating war in many countries and on Israel’s borders helping their Hamas and Hezbollah proxies to launch war on Israel and American troops. The Arab countries have also used war and terror to their advantages and everyone must spend trillions to defend themselves against their Islamic terrorism and suffer thousands of deaths each year because of Islamic terrorism. It is time for them to stop using America as their shield while they invade our countries with help from their Dem leftist 5th column helpers in Europe and America.

    The big hypocrisy is that these towel head regimes are using religion to inflate their bank accounts to distribute to their gang members. There is such huge amount of cash flowing among oppressive regimes that we see these scumbags as the head of the snake of evil. The Western Civilization against these scumbags. Cut the oil, you cut the money. Less money, less scumbags. As simple as that.

    There are only 2 possibilities:
    1. IRAN IS THE CULPRIT This is because they hate the Gulf states and America.
    2. THE CULPRIT IS IRAN This is because they hate the Gulf states for being able to sell without sanctions their oil.

      Yes, looking that way. Iran needs to be stopped one way or the other. They would only end up in war with someone else anyway. Most people understand that. These guys are not going to stop so its inevitable. Better now than later when they are much stronger.

    Nothing more annoying than bad fake news, Mossad.

    For what you’re making, and receiving in welfare checks, your lies should be much better.

      So full of hubris. Will the ordinance arrive by telepathy? Or is your creator and benefactor Uncle Sam ready to lose yet another war on your behalf?

      The Zionist terror militia can’t reach us with anything other than their mean words. Probably safer and smarter to continue using your terrorist air force against women, children, medics and the elderly.

    IS THIS THE REGIME THE WORLD WILL FEAR?…………..”Men in Iran have been ordered not to look at women during Ramadan as part of a round of draconian restrictions imposed by the increasingly isolated regime. In a sign of frustration with growing civil discontent and economic pain caused by US sanctions, hardliners in Iran’s government are forcing through unusually strict social diktats to bring people into line. The country’s judiciary has announced that those eating in public during the fasting period are also in breach of laws and will be prosecuted.

    It is obvious that those “attacks” were false flag conducted by Mossad / CIA. Israel is pushing US to attack Iran. US journos are babbling about Russian interference, but nobody speaks about Israel interference in US foreign policy. In fact Israel is a puppet master and US is the puppet doing wars on account of Israel, using US taxpayers money and US young men giving their lives. I wonder when Americans will wake up and say enough is enough to Israel.
