The vessel that was attacked in the Red Sea.

An American official told The New York Times on Tuesday that Israel had notified the United States that its forces had struck the Iranian military vessel Saviz in the Red Sea at about 7:30 a.m. local time. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that the Israelis had called the attack a retaliation for earlier Iranian strikes on Israeli vessels. The official added that the Saviz had been damaged below the water line. Israeli officials had not commented as of Tuesday night on the attack on the vessel. Reports dating back to October 2020 suggest that the Saviz, registered as a merchant ship and a suspected covert Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) forward base, is stationed in a strategic position on the coast of Yemen.

Apparently the notification was after the deed was done. That's good if that's the case. Doesn't give diben the opportunity to alert the Iranian govmint to an imminent attack.
Wise thinking on Israel's part to tell the U.S. after the fact, and Israel felt threatened to attack the Iranian vessel in Red sea.

This is the only thing barbarians understand. Give no quarter, and expect none.
Don't even waste a quarter in a pay phone to advise Dementia Joe of your plans. You are last on his list of priorities. He wants to smooth things over with Iran.
