Two missiles struck the Iran-owned Sinopa oil tanker setting it ablaze off the Saudi port of Jeddah, Iranian state TV reported.

"Two missiles hit the Iran-owned ship near the Jeddah port city of Saudi Arabia," TV said, quoting the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC). The vessel owned by the National Iranian Tanker Company was hit about 100 kilometres (60 miles) off the Saudi coast.

All crew members of are safe and the situation of the tanker is stable, Iran's Nour news agency reported. "None of the crew members were injured at the explosion... the situation is under control," the news agency, close to Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards Corps, reported.

Tensions have been high between regional foes Iran and Saudi Arabia since an attack on the Kingdom's two oil facilities on September 14 that caused fires and damage and shutting down 5.7 million barrels per day (bpd) of production - more than 5% of global oil supply.

Yemen's Houthi group claimed responsibility for the attacks but a US official said they originated from southwestern Iran. Riyadh blamed Tehran. Iran, which supports the Houthis in Yemen's war, has denied any involvement.

NITC's public relation’s office said on Friday that two explosions, ‘likely by missiles’, have hit SABITI oil tanker at 5:00 and 5:20 AM on Friday some 60 miles off Jeddah.

NITC further dismissed rumors that the vessel was hit by missiles from Saudi soil.

According to officials, all the crew are safe and secure and the tanker is in a stable condition.

“In the past months, some other sabotage acts against Iranian tankers had been carried out in the Red Sea and investigations are underway into their perpetrators,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi said, adding, “All the responsibilities of this measure, including environmental pollution in the region, falls on those behind this dangerous adventure.”

Experts are still investigating the cause of blasts.

NITC said the attacks were not from Saudi territory.

Glad to see the damage is limited.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran avoids haste and is precisely studying the incident and discovering its realities. No doubt, proper response will be given to the mastermind of this cowardly attack, but we will wait until all dimensions of this plot come into light," Rabiyee said on Saturday.

The ship is going straight back home to Iran...

There is a theory that this ship was also carrying weapons for Syria/Hezbollah because in the past Israel has declared that Iran is smuggling weapons in this way and it will be taking steps to stop it. This would explain why the ship is returning to Iran even though according to some reports it is still spilling oil even as it travels...
