Unconfirmed Reports: American, French Air-Force Attack on 7 Oil Tankers at UAE Part of Al-Fujairah
Local media, citing eye witnesses, report mysterious explosions at the United Arab Emirates port of Fujarah early Sunday with no information on the cause of the disaster, casualties or comments from the authorities.
According to first reports US and French warplanes were flowing overhead at the time and from 7 to 10 oil tankers are in flames. The UAE is currently expanding the port to hold the world’s largest crude oil storage facility, capable of storing up to 14 million barrels of oil.
Several heavy explosions occurred early on Sunday in the port of Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates, a number of media reports say. The reports, citing eyewitnesses, further suggested that American and French warplanes have been seen flying over the port at the time of the incident.
According to the Emirati Foreign Ministry, four merchant vessels had been targeted by “acts of sabotage” in Gulf waters off its coast.
“Four commercial, civilian trading vessels of various nationalities this morning suffered acts of sabotage off the UAE’s eastern coast,” the statement reads.
The government of Fujairah denied on Sunday media reports about several heavy explosions taking place at the emirate’s port, insisting that the port is functioning as usual.
“The press service of the Fujairah government denied media reports about powerful explosions in the emirate’s port earlier this day and confirmed that ship traffic is as usual,” the state-run WAM news agency reports.
