Unusual story coming from Egypt.
Surely if true, it would of generated headlines around the world.

Couple this with the Iranian news story about cancelling and air show due to Israel action, makes you wonder just what is going on in that part of the world between arch foes.

can you spell clandestine.... that mean no one saw or heard anything.
or they hope no one saw or heard anything. you only see in the news what your supposed to see.

although it can be laden with propaganda these foreign news sources can be rather reliable due to lack of governmental influence.

The quote that says US officials confirmed IAF involvment talks about Sudan trucks convoy, not this new ship incident. And Iran spoke about Sudanese trucks, too. I doubt very much that they would be silent about their own ship being sunk.

Nice, good pickup. Perhaps to many Anzac public holiday whiskies...

Still,

Clandestine or not....

you cant sink an entire ship without the origin of the ship becoming wise.

How do you spell BS.

A unidentified Iranian arms ship sunk by a unidentified American or israeli ship with no reports of it happening on the leading world wide Daily Vessel Casualty and Piracy Report sites on the Internet.

www.cargolaw.com...

Plus no one saw what happened or how it happened.
if a ship sunk it was likely a accident from some stupid sailor smoking in the hold with a bunch of explosives or one of the many other causes that sinks ship around the world daily.

as for the site that reported it will i will leave that to someone else to explain.

LOL I call shenanigans on those silly Israelis.

How the hell can you instantly know the origin of a ship but not know who blew it up? I guess this entire event was witnessed by Haaretz's chopper 5 - Eye In The Sky
