Dhe sun had just risen when the crew of the “Shahr e Kord” heard an explosion. From the bridge they saw a cloud of smoke rising from one of the white containers on deck. The state-owned company did not want to reveal what kind of cargo the Iranian ship had loaded. Just so much that the “Shahr e Kord” was on the way from Iran to Spain. That morning three weeks ago she was 50 kilometers from the Israeli coast.
That shouldn’t be a coincidence. The Wall Street Journal recently revealed that Israel has damaged at least a dozen Iranian ships in the past two years. According to “Ha’aretz” this is only “the tip of the iceberg”.
