Iran Seizes Ship Linked To Israeli Billionaire In Latest Escalation Of Tensions

The seizure was first reported by the Iranian state-run Islamic Republic News Agency, which identified the ship as the MSC Aries, affiliated with Israeli businessman Eyal Ofer, chair of the Zodiac Group, which reportedly operates the ship.

Sharing a video of the incident on X, formerly Twitter, the news agency claimed Iranian forces conducted a helicopter operation to guide the ship to Iranian waters while carrying out an “evacuation of personnel.”

Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz subsequently claimed Iran had seized “a Portuguese civilian cargo ship, belonging to an EU member, claiming Israeli ownership,” and he accused Iran of “conducting a pirate operation in violation of international law.”

Katz called on the European Union “and the free world” to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps—which was reportedly behind the seizure—“a terrorist organization,” and to impose sanctions on Iran.

Zodiac Maritime said the ship’s title is held by Gortal Shipping, which is affiliated with Zodiac, but deferred questions to Swiss shipping company MSC, which Zodiac said is the ship’s manager and is responsible for all vessel operations.

In a statement to Forbes, MSC confirmed the incident and said there were 25 crew members onboard the ship, adding: “We are working closely with the relevant authorities to ensure their wellbeing, and safe return of the vessel.”
