Amid increased naval tensions between Israel and Iran, Iranian state media claimed on Monday that an Israeli dolphin-class submarine had entered the Red Sea last Wednesday via the Suez Canal, accompanied by two battleships. Nour News said that sources in Iran’s Supreme Council of National Security had confirmed the submarine’s passage into the Red Sea, but believed the move was “mostly just for show.”

The sources were quoted as saying that Israel had “failed to create a consensus against Iran” following the recent attack on an Israeli-linked ship off the coast of Oman but “continues to try to create tension” in the region. Two crew members, a Briton and a Romanian, were killed in last month’s attack on the MT Mercer Street. The ship is operated by Zodiac Maritime, a London-based company belonging to Israeli tycoon Eyal Ofer. Iran has denied responsibility for the blast, but analysts have described the operation as part of a shadow war between Iran and Israel.
