Iran: Regional tensions and local tragedies

Gulf shipping: Tehran is widely believed to have been behind a series of attacks on shipping in the Gulf of Oman in May and June, although it has denied any involvement. The UAE was notably reticent to blame Iran and surprised observers by sending a delegation to Tehran on 30 July to discuss marine security. Omani officials also travelled to Iran in late July to discuss the security of shipping through the Strait of Hormuz.
