Washington vows imminent response to Iran

US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, accused Iran of being behind the attack on the Israeli ship in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Oman.
Blinken threatened to retaliate against Iran, and said, “We join our partners and allies in condemning the attack on (Mercer Street), the merchant ship that was sailing safely across the northern Arabian Sea in international waters.”
“After reviewing the available information, we are confident that Iran carried out this attack, which killed two innocent people, using unidirectional explosive drones,” he added.
Blinken stressed that his country is consulting with its partners in the region and abroad about the appropriate response, “which will be imminent.”
