    DUBAI, June 13 (Reuters) - Two oil tankers were hit in suspected attacks in the Gulf of Oman, shipping firms and industry sources said on Thursday, sending oil prices as much as 4% higher a month after four other tankers were damaged by limpet mines in the region.

    One of the tankers, the Front Altair, carrying a cargo of petrochemical feedstock, was ablaze in waters between Gulf Arab states and Iran.

    Iran's state news agency said it had sunk, although the Norwegian owner had said it was afloat and its crew were safe. The other tanker was adrift without any crew.

    A missile fired by Houthi rebels struck the arrivals hall of an airport in southwestern Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, injuring 26 people, a Saudi official said.

    Eighteen people were treated at Abha International Airport for minor injuries and another eight were taken to hospital, Turki al-Malki, spokesman of the US-backed Saudi-led coalition battling rebels in Yemen, said in a statement published on Saudi state media.

    What does Iran gain by attacking these tankers? Could they have done it sure, but they coul have been attacking these for the last 40 years. This smells to me more of a 3rd party who has something to gain by pushing us to hit Iran. The people who gain by this are numerous:
    Saudia Arabia
    Israel
    ISIS
    The Taliban
    The Russians
    The Chinese
    The North Koreans
    pick one they all make more sense than for Iran to attack two tankers.

    Now i am even more sure it was not Iran. according to this article the ships were japanese flaged vessels. The PM of Japan was finishing up a state visit to Iran at this same time. Logic does not state that Iran would attack these targets at this time.

    @el005639 The chief state sponsor of terror in the world is still Iran and they are mad about President Trump scrapping the Iran nuke deal. Also mines do not care what they hit after being released, so no control over the visit of the Jap PM and when the Jap tanker being hit.
