Iranian President Hassan Rouhani stated that it’s still too early to say who struck an Iranian oil tanker in the Red Sea with missiles on Friday, but did say that one country had conducted the attack with the help of other nations.
The statements were made during a press conference on Monday.
“For sure, a regime assisted by certain states has carried out this [attack], and we are studying the incident to see what has happened,” said Rouhani, according to the Iranian Fars news.
Rouhani said that Iran had a video showing “a number of missiles” fired at the tanker, with two hitting the tanker itself, according to the Iranian IRNA news agency. The video, taken from a camera on the tanker itself, show where the rockets were fired from and from what angle.
Now, here’s what all freedom-loving nations will wish to hear when the Iranian’s finally discover the perpetrators of the evil deed:
Iran today announced that it had finally uncovered the source of the missiles that struck an Iranian oil tanker in the Red Sea. “It was us what did it,” said a government spokesman. “We’d love to find someone else to blame, but the plain fact is our missiles lost their bearings while we were trying to attack the Saudis again.”
And pigs will fly….
