Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said the Iranian oil tanker 'Sabiti', which was reportedly damaged off the Saudi coast on Friday, was hit by at least two rockets, adding that the Iranian government has video footage proving the attack, speaking in Tehran, on Monday.

He also said that the government will take additional measures to ensure the security of Iranian-owned tankers.

The vessel was reportedly hit by two missiles, according to the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC), but the origin of the rockets is yet to be determined. The company also denied initial reports quoting it as saying the missiles had originated in Saudi Arabia.

Addressing the issue of Turkey's military action in north-eastern Syria, Rouhani expressed concern about Turkey's decision, saying there were better alternative options.

The Iranian leader also commented on the situation in Yemen, saying that reaching a ceasefire would help improve Iran-Saudi relations.
