Israel TV Report: Defense Officials Confirm Damage to Cargo Ship

FILE - A cargo ship docks as its cargo is unloaded at Haifa's port, northern Israel, Oct. 12, 2020.

Israeli defense officials were checking to see whether an Israeli-owned cargo ship was attacked Saturday by Iranian forces on its way from Jeddah to the United Arab Emirates, according to Israel's N12 Television News.

The crew was not hurt, and the ship was not badly damaged, N12 said, citing unnamed sources within Israel's defense establishment.

Lebanese pro-Iranian TV channel Al Mayadeen had reported earlier that the ship was attacked in the Indian Ocean.
