Iranian Ship Used as Revolutionary Guard Base Near Yemen Attacked 'by Israel'

An Iranian cargo ship believed to be a base for the Revolutionary Guard has been attacked.

Iran's Foreign Ministry confirmed the Tuesday attack on the MV Saviz, which has been anchored in the Red Sea off the coast of Yemen for years.

The assault, which is suspected to have been carried out by Israel, came as Iran and world powers sat down in Vienna for the first talks about the US potentially rejoining a landmark nuclear deal with Tehran and others.

'Fortunately, no casualties were reported ... and technical investigations are underway,' Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said in a statement.

'Our country will take all necessary measures through international authorities.' (DM / VFI News)
