The Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Mayadeen news released a video on Monday allegedly showing that the Israeli vessel reportedly targeted by an Iranian attack in the Gulf of Oman last month was damaged by an internal explosion. The footage was allegedly recorded by an Iranian drone. Al-Mayadeen claimed that the footage proved that the holes in the hull of the vessel were caused by explosions from within the ship, not from outside. An Iranian official told Al-Mayadeen that the timing was also not good for an operation against an Israeli cargo ship, saying "there is no reason to carry out an operation against an Israeli cargo ship, especially in the weeks before the elections."

"[Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's claim that Iran targeted the ship on the eve of the Israeli elections raises suspicions," added the unnamed official as, "[US President Joe] Biden's arrival to power and the decline of [Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed] Bin Salman's power raised the fears of the Zionist entity."
