TEHRAN: Iran’s international ministry rejected Monday as “nugatory” Washington’s claims {that a} drone assault focusing on a tanker off the coast of India was “fired from Iran.”
Saturday’s focusing on of a Japanese-owned chemical tanker got here amid a flurry of drone and missile assaults by Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels within the Purple Sea in solidarity with Palestinians in Gaza, the place Israel is battling Hamas militants.
The Pentagon later brazenly accused Tehran of the assault.
