A massive cargo ship owned by an Israeli billionaire was reportedly the victim of an Iranian terrorist attack on Friday in the Indian Ocean.

The Jerusalem Post noted that the news was first reported by the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen channel, which is affiliated with the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah.

The Malta-flagged CMA CGM SYMI cargo ship was targeted by a triangle-shaped, bomb-carrying Iranian Shahed-136 “kamikaze” drone while in international waters, a senior U.S. defense official told the Associated Press.

The official said that the U.S. believes the attack was carried out by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG), a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) that is comprised of the hardline faction of Iran’s military.

Senator Cotton: A ‘Massive Retaliation’ Against Iran Directly Is Only Way To Stop Attacks On U.S. Forces

Nov. 26 2023

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said during an interview over the weekend that the only way to stop Iranian attacks against U.S. forces in the Middle East would be to launch a “massive retaliation” against the country.

Cotton told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Shannon Bream that under President Joe Biden, Iran and its proxies have launched approximately 150 attacks against U.S. forces in the Middle East, including at least 66 since October 17.

“We’ve only hit back a few times. When we do hit back, it’s almost always at empty proxy warehouses or maybe proxy forces in Iraq and Syria,” Cotton said. “It seems like the president wants to go out of his way to avoid Iranian casualties. I would target Iranians who are operating in Iraq and in Syria. I would also send a clear message to Iran if these attacks don’t stop immediately, then we’ll begin to threaten their assets.”

Cotton dismissed fears from weak-kneed politicians who fear escalating militarily against Iran.
