The UK Marine Trade Operations reports that a non-piracy incident is “currently underway” some 60 miles east of the UAE emirate of Fujairah, where an Israeli-linked ship struck last week in an attack blamed on Iran is anchored.

“Vessels are advised to exercise extreme caution when transiting this area,” an alert from the UKMTO says.
