Description: UKMTO has reported a “non-piracy incident” offshore Fujairah. Details are still TBC however considering high tensions between regional powers following recent fatal incident
offshore Oman against a tanker, all vessels should remain extremely vigilant. Any vessels linked to Israeli interests are under particular threat by Iran and Iranian allies.

area (South Korean-vessel seized in January 2021).
