Naftali Bennett raised speculation about the nature of the Israeli response by saying, “We know how to send a message to Iran in our own way.”

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has “unequivocally” confirmed Iran’s involvement in the deadly attack on an oil tanker off the coast of Oman, accusations that Tehran called “baseless”.

Two of the ship’s crew were killed when the tanker Mercer Street, operated by a company owned by an Israeli businessman, was attacked last Thursday.

“We know how to send a message to Iran,” the Israeli prime minister warned, while Tehran said it “will not hesitate to defend its interests.”

Several recent attacks have occurred on ships operated by Israeli companies and on ships operated by Iranian companies.
