US vows ‘collective response’ to Iran after ship attack

“We’ve conducted a thorough review and we’re confident that Iran carried out this attack,” Blinken said.

The United States vowed a “collective response” to Iran for the attack it allegedly carried out on an Israeli-managed ship off the coast of Oman, the top US diplomat said Monday.
“We communicate and coordinate closely with the United Kingdom, Israel, Romania, and other nations. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told reporters at the State Department, “And there will be a collective response.”

Blinken, in his most clear-cut accusation, said Iran was behind the drone attack on the Mercer Street tanker last Friday. Tehran has denied being behind the attack, which killed two crew members.

“We’ve conducted a thorough review and we’re confident that Iran carried out this attack,” Blinken said.

On Saturday night, Blinken called with his Israeli counterpart and “agreed to collaborate with the United Kingdom, Romania, and other international partners to investigate the facts, provide support, and discuss the right next steps,” according to the press release.
