Blast-Hit Tankers to Be Assessed Off UAE Coast

According to Reuters, the ship's operators said that the two oil tankers crippled in attacks in the Gulf of Oman last week, are being assessed off the coast off the United Arab Emirates before their cargos are unloaded. Damage assessment on Japan’s Kokuka Courageous and preparation for ship-to-ship transfer of its methanol cargo would start after authorities from the UAE complete security checks. Thursday's attacks heightened tensions between Iran and the United States and its Gulf allies, after similar blasts in May struck four ships.
