According to Haaretz, Israeli defense authorities suspect Iran was behind the attack.
According to the Times of Israel, the Liberian-flagged Tyndall left from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and was en route to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Zodiac Maritime, a London-based company owned by Israeli millionaire Eyal Ofer, previously owned the ship.
The firm claimed ownership of the vessel, but that it had been sold months before.
In a statement, Zodiac Maritime said, “Following media claims, we can confirm that the vessel CSAV Tyndall is not owned or controlled by Zodiac Maritime, which is a UK ship management company.”
According to Haaretz, the ship was not flying an Israeli flag and the crew was not Israeli.

There has been no formal claim of responsibility.
Iran and Israel have been engaged in a shadow war of attacks on one other’s shipping in recent months.
According to The Times of Israel, an Israeli cargo ship was damaged by a missile while travelling in the Gulf of Oman in March. The incident was blamed on Iran, despite the fact that no one was hurt.
In February, a similar incident occurred.
The attacks, however, have not been one-sided. Several dozen Iranian oil tankers and an Iranian container ship were assaulted in the Mediterranean Sea, and Israel is suspected of being behind it.
