On May 12, unidentified assailants attacked an Emirati, a Norwegian, and two Saudi oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. The United States suspects that Iran orchestrated the attacks, but neither Saudi Arabia nor the United Arab Emirates have made any announcements about the identity of the attackers. Iran denied involvement.
