One of them was registered in Panama, the second vessel belonged to the Norwegian Frontline and sailed under the flag of the Marshall Islands. On one of the ships were 11 Russians, they, like other crew members, were evacuated to Iran. After the explosions, the tankers caught fire.

The United States and the UK accused the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps of attacking ships.

Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman joined their opinion and also accused Iran of attacking tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
Britain would send 100 Royal Navy special forces soldiers to the Persian Gulf to strengthen the protection of its ships in the region after the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman were carried out. Such information was reported by The Sunday Times.

Marines from the 42nd Airborne unit, based near Plymouth, will form a unit of rapid reaction forces at the British naval base in Bahrain, which has been operating since 2018.
