Iran has rejected what it says are Israel's unfounded allegations that Iran's Revolutionary Guard attacked an Israeli-owned cargo ship near the Gulf of Oman last month.
Iran's U.N. ambassador in a letter circulated Tuesday accused Israel of "playing the victim to distract attention away from all its destabilizing acts and malign practices across the region."
Ambassador Majid Takht Ravanchi said in the letter to the U.N. Security Council that the incident "has all the characteristics of a complicated false flag operation by actors in order to pursue their malign policies and to advance their illegitimate objectives."
