    This article refers to israeli f-35 jets that are apparently striking at will across the ME.

    (I post here because the article makes reference to the supposed attack in Iraq last week against an Iranian base that was under construction.)

    Iran starting to attack israeli assets after years of attacks from israel in Syria ? I guess Iran is ready to escalate which means lot of missiles around israel.

    According to senior Israeli sources, the ship (in the Gulf) was hit "unequivocally" by Iran because it was an Israeli-owned ship. "We are thinking of an appropriate response. It will not pass in silence," they added

    More like the British secret agents pretending to be Iranians launch attack on obviously israeli ship to provoke.

    Standard imbeciles immediately point to nationality of the ship and proof of who was responsible... you know... Israeli ship = Iran did it... just like Russian ass hole poisoned = Putin did it... You know... solid sound environmentally friendly reasoning that would make Sherlock Holmes proud to be British.

    Israeli/British ship at that. Double whammy target. I'd lay money that it was an ATGM from a drone, unlikely operated by Iran as they had nothing to gain. Again, a false flag.

    Israel's response "It will not pass in silence" will be interesting as having said that they can't back down.

    It could be Iran. A warning to their attacks. Israel can't really answer to that because its ships will be targeted even more in the middle east and they need it for oil supply.

    Israel thinks it has the right to enter neighbours airspace and attack targets it thinks might be a danger to the.... I don't think expecting rational behaviour is going to be saving anyone.

    It is a like a group of Saudi and Pakistani nationals flew aircraft into targets in the US so the US invades... Iraq and Afghanistan...

    Most of oil imported by Israel comes from US, not really by tankers from Persian Gulf.
