Recent reports from Iranian state media indicate that air defense batteries targeting unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been activated near the city of Isfahan following explosions near a major air base. Maritime security experts are warning ships in the Arabian Gulf and western Indian Ocean to stay vigilant due to possible increased UAV activity in the region, believed to be in response to recent events involving Iran.

The attacks are seen as retaliation for Iran’s hijacking of the container ship MSC Aries and an attack on Israel following violence at its consulate in Syria. Tensions between the two countries have raised concerns about the safety of shipping in the region, especially since Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen have been targeting ships amidst the conflict in Gaza.

Flight restrictions have been implemented over Iranian airspace, and airlines are being redirected to alternative airports. With Australia’s Foreign Ministry advising its citizens to leave Israel due to the rising tensions, experts are warning of the potential impact these attacks could have on global trade routes, particularly those passing through the vital Strait of Hormuz.
