Matthew RJ Brodsky joins i24News to discuss the attack on a ship off the coast of Oman in the Arabian Sea, marking the first fatalities after years of Iranian assaults targeting shipping in the region. London-based Zodiac Maritime, part of Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer's Zodiac Group, said the attack killed two crew members, one from the United Kingdom and the other from Romania. The ship was the Liberian-flagged tanker, "Mercer Street." Reports indicate the ship was attacked by suicide drones.
