An Israeli ship called the Hyperion and owned by an Israeli company was attacked near the shores of the Fujairah emirate in the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, according to reports in Lebanon. The attack came a day after Iran vowed to avenge the explosion at its Natanz nuclear facility, which it blamed on Israel. Data available on MarineTraffic.com showed that the Hyperion, a vehicle carrier sailing under the flag of the Bahamas, was stopped off the coast of Fujairah. Arab media reports said that the ship was hit by an Iranian missile.

The vessel is associated with the Israeli Ray Shipping company, the same company that owns a vessel hit by an alleged Iranian attack in February. Israeli media reported that the attack was likely carried out with a missile or drone and that only light damage was caused to the vessel. An Israeli security official told The New York Times on Tuesday that Israel did not intend to respond with another attack on an Iranian vessel, as Israelis is trying to reduce tensions in the Persian Gulf area. The IDF declined to comment on the reports.
