Suicide drone apparently targeted ship managed by Eyal Ofer’s Zodiac Maritime near Oman; company says British, Romanian staff died; reports that one of those killed was the captain.

An Israeli security official who spoke on condition of anonymity told The Associated Press that Israel believes Iran was behind the attack on the ship, citing similar attacks in the past.

Analysts said the attack bore all the hallmarks of tit-for-tat exchanges in the “shadow war” between Israel and Iran, in which vessels linked to each nation have been targeted in waters around the Gulf.
