After Iranian denial, @naftalibennett says Israel has intelligence showing with certainty that Iran attacked the Mercer Street ship near Oman, killing UK and Romanian citizens
Israeli Prime Minister Benett says he knows unequivocally that Iran is behind the attack on the "Mercer Street" and that there is intelligence that proves that
Khatibzadeh added that "it's not the first time that this government has accused Iran" and insisted that Tehran "will not hesitate to protect its interests" – apparently a warning to Israel about a possible response to the attack
Iran's MOFA Spox Khatibzadeh has "condemned" Israel's assertion that Tehran was involved in the attack on the MT Mercer Street tanker. "We condemn these comments and accusations. Wherever this government [Israel] has been, it's taken violence and lack of security with it"
