Pentagon Releases New Pictures Accusing Iran of Attacking 2 Oil Tankers
Tuesday, 18 June 2019 18:40 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The U.S. Defense Department has released new photographs it says are more proof that Iran attacked two foreign oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week.

The pictures show what the United States says are Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces taking an unexploded mine off the side of the Japanese-owned Kokuka Courageous tanker. Another shot shows where the mine had been attached.

Other pictures show a large hole in the Courageous that the Pentagon says was likely caused by another mine.

Iran has not reacted to the new pictures, but has denied involvement in the tanker attacks, calling the claims "ridiculous" and "dangerous."

Monday afternoon, Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan announced the deployment of about 1,000 more troops to the Middle East for what he said were"defensive purposes."
