Images show damage caused to Israeli-owned tanker hit by Iranian drone

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

CNN publishes images showing damage caused to an Israeli-owned oil tanker that was struck by an Iranian Shahed-136 drone off the coast of Oman on Tuesday night.

The network, on its Arabic-language site, posts two pictures, one showing damage to the Pacific Zircon vessel, and the other showing debris from the explosive-laden drone.

The report says the images were provided to CNN by a Western defense official, but it adds that the network cannot independently verify their authenticity.
