After the US put the blame squarely on Iran for sabotaging four oil tankers off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, a preliminary probe concluded that a 'state actor' was likely behind the raid, but made no mention of Iran.

According to reports by Reuters and Bloomberg, preliminary findings from the investigation jointly conducted by the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Norway and presented at an informal UN briefing on Thursday, describe the attack as a complex effort that required significant resources.

Iran lashes out at ‘warmonger’ Bolton over ‘ridiculous’ claims about UAE oil tanker attacks

The investigators argue that the attackers, who inflicted damage on the tankers, but did not cause casualties or an oil spill, required "high degree sophistication", precise intelligence and "expert navigation of fast boats" to pick the targets, get in and get out undetected. All of this, they claim, are signs a 'state actor' was likely responsible.

This wording allows the countries behind the report, two of which are among the US' main allies and arms sales clients in the Middle East, to maintain a neutral image without actually contradicting Washington, which accused Iran out of hand.
