Iran denies 'US-Israeli' assault on navy ship

Iran rejects a report that an Iranian navy vessel has been targeted by "Israeli or American missiles" and was ultimately sunk in the Red Sea.

The report "about a missile attack by the US or Israel against an Iranian navy ship" is false, an informed source speaking on condition of anonymity told Press TV on Tuesday.

An Egyptian magazine had published a report, claiming that the Iranian vessel had been targeted by missiles near Sudan.

The unnamed source dismissed the report as the product of a propaganda machine against the Tehran government.

Iran's Navy has dispatched vessels to the Red Sea, in line with an international campaign, to fight off piracy off the coast of Somalia.

Pirates have hijacked more than 100 ships over the last year in the notorious waters of the Gulf of Aden.
