Oil Tanker In Flames Off Syrian Coast After Suspected Drone Attack

The Times of Israel reports a fire broke out on an oil tanker moored off the port of Banyas, located in northwestern Syria. 

The source of the fire is unknown at the moment, but Syria’s oil ministry reports “an apparent drone attack coming from Lebanese territory” is responsible for the incident. 

The ministry didn’t provide any information about the ship’s name, but the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the vessel was Iranian. 

Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) allegedly shows the vessel with a plume of black smoke rising in front of the bridge.
