Iran: Red Sea missile strike raises doubts about Syria deliveries
The Iranian-owned tanker Sabiti was hit by two missiles at around 5am on 11 October as it was steaming north up the Red Sea in international waters some 95km west of Jeddah. The resulting explosions holed the tanker and created an oil spill, but the vessel was able to turn around and make its way back to Iran via the Bab El Mandeb strait.
