Israel has a bunch of different covert groups. It could have been them. But I would have expected them to go after warships, not support vessels.
Given the Iranian Navy’s history of poor maintenance and accidents, it doesn’t have to be enemy action. They have had ships sink before when enemy action and weather were not involved.

During WWII the allies bombed ball bearing plants. This affected everything down stream that needs bearings.

Taking out a supply ship restricts their ships. All of them.

“But the fourth one? Yes, that will defeat all the Greater and Lesser Satans! From the river to the s… what? The sea is too shallow? And how is that possible, you fool!
