Israeli Foreign Minister Jair Lapid has said he wants to bring the case of an attack on an oil tanker owned by an Israeli billionaire company to the United Nations, with two dead among the crew in the Oman Sea. Israel blames Iran for the attack.

The London-based Israeli company Zodiac Maritime announced yesterday the "death of two crew members: a Romanian and a British man" during an incident on Mercer Street.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Dryad Global, a London-based maritime security company, has called for new "retaliation" in the shadowy war between the two powers, including Iran and Israel.

"I have instructed the embassies in Washington, London and the UN to work with their interlocutors and the relevant delegations at the UN headquarters in New York," Lapid wrote on Twitter yesterday.

The Israeli foreign minister also said he had spoken to his British counterpart Dominique Raab, stressing "the need for a strong response to the attack on the ship in which a British citizen was killed".

"Iran is sowing violence and destruction in every corner of the region," an Israeli government official said in a statement, stressing that "Iran is not just a problem for Israel, it is a global problem and its behavior raises endangering the freedom of navigation and trade in the world ".

The U.S. military says U.S. Navy personnel responded to a distress signal and went to help the tanker, which was targeted and could see evidence of an attack. The first evidence "clearly showed" a drone attack.

In Iran, the state-run Arabic television network cited "informed sources in the region" who confirmed that the attack was a response to a "recent Israeli attack" in Syria, without going into details.
