US officials were notified by the Israelis of the attack, according to media reports

Washington. April 7. INTERFAX-The US military is not connected with the incident in the Red Sea, which occurred with the Iranian-flagged ship "Saviz", said Pentagon spokeswoman Jessica McNulty.

"We can confirm that no American forces were involved in the incident," McNulty said in a statement.

"We don't have any additional information that we can provide," she said.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reported that Iranian officials confirmed the attack on the ship.

It is assumed that the ship was attacked by the Israeli military.

According to a knowledgeable U.S. official who spoke to the New York Times on condition of anonymity, the Israelis notified the U.S. that their forces had struck the ship around 7:30 a.m. local time.

He noted that the Israelis called the attack retaliation for previous Iranian strikes on Israeli ships and that the Saviz was damaged below the waterline.

Earlier, the Iranian Mehr news agency reported that the ship "Saviz" under the Iranian flag was subjected to rocket fire in the Red Sea on Tuesday.

According to another Iranian agency, Tasnim, the ship was hit by a magnetic mine.

According to initial reports, the incident occurred in the area between the coasts of Yemen and Eritrea.
