Blinken Pledges 'Collective Response' to Iranian Attack on Israeli-Operated Tanker


US Secretary of State Antony Blinken pledged a “collective response” to an Iranian attack on an Israeli-operated tanker.

The tanker was struck by an Iranian UAV and severely damaged, killing two -- a Briton and a Romanian.

“We are in very close contact, in coordination, with the United Kingdom, Israel, Romania, and other countries. And there will be a collective response,” Blinken said, according to the Times of Israel.

He added that the attack was a “direct threat to freedom of navigation and commerce.”

“Iran continues to act with tremendous irresponsibility,” he said.
