Two U.S. officials, also speaking on condition of anonymity as they didn’t have authorization to speak publicly, acknowledged the attack caused “fatalities,” without elaborating.

A U.S. warship and the Indian navy were on the scene, trying to assist in rescue efforts, the official said.

The UKMTO on Wednesday night acknowledged the ship had been abandoned by its crew and was no longer under command.

The Houthis didn’t immediately claim the attack, though it typically takes several hours for them to acknowledge an assault.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry announced early Tuesday that he would resign once a transitional presidential council is created, capitulating to international pressure that seeks to save the country overwhelmed by violent gangs that some experts say have unleashed a low-scale civil war.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday canceled a planned trip to Washington by his top aides to discuss plans for an offensive in the Gaza city of Rafah, taking the step after the United States refrained from using a veto to block a United Nations Security Council resolution, backed by Russia and China, that called for a ceasefire ***without conditioning it on the release of hostages.***

The Iranian officials killed in Damascus on Monday all played a common role, says Modarres.

"They were all responsible, in different capacities, for relations with Iranian-affiliated groups, particularly Hamas and Hezbollah," he says.

If the attack was indeed of Israeli origin, it had a "preventive dimension – Israel wanted to minimise Iran's ability to coordinate with all these groups in anticipation of a possible extension of the conflict".

By attacking some of the most prominent members of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, Bregman says the Israelis "want to make Tehran understand that they also consider Iran to be responsible for what's happening in Gaza and on the border with Lebanon”.

“It's a way of making it clear that they won't just try to strike Iran's satellite groups," he says.

Filippo Dionigi, a specialist in Islamist movements and the Middle East at the University of Bristol, agrees that Monday's air strike could indicate that Israel is ready to escalate the conflict with Iran. "This is an unprecedented escalation of tensions since the start of the war against Hamas," he says.
