Shipping firm led by Israeli says it doesn’t own or operate ship that was attacked

Zodiac Maritime, a shipping firm led by Israeli magnate Eyal Ofer, says it does not own or operate the vessel attacked today in the Indian Ocean.

“Following reports in the media, we can confirm that the vessel CSAV Tyndall is not owned or operated by Zodiac Maritime, which is a UK ship management company,” it says in a statement.

The attack on the ship was first reported by a Lebanese television station linked to Hezbollah, the Iran-backed terror group, and Israeli media reports have said that the belief in Israel is that the strike was an Iranian operation.
