The suspected attack is believed to be in retaliation for a previous attack on an Iranian-owned ship near the coast of Syria, which Tehran attributed to Israel, YNet reported. It will undergo damage assessment at the Gujarat port.

The MEA has said that it is closely monitoring the incident. However, the Centre has not issued any official statement yet in this regard.

Notably, with Israel in the process of forming a government and Palestine facing elections in the coming months, India has said the international community must use this phase to focus on how to encourage the parties back to “meaningful negotiations” for achieving a peaceful solution to the dispute.

Israel and Palestine have been in conflict for decades over various political issues such as borders, refugees, and the control of Jerusalem. The two-state solution has for decades been the primary focus of efforts to achieve peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
