Sabotage attack against Saudi oil tankers could impact world oil supply

Two Saudi oil tankers have suffered ‘significant damage’ in what is being described as a sabotage attack. The attacks took place off the coast of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates.

“The reported incident – which could threaten the security of global oil supplies – came after the US warned ships that ‘Iran or its proxies’ could be targeting maritime traffic in the region, prompting the US to send an aircraft carrier strike group and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf.”
