" Rear Admiral John Gower, a former Royal Navy submarine commander, told the BBC earlier this month that it would take a more sophisticated force than the Houthis, someone with submersibles capable of locating the cables to do the deed. Someone like Iran.
"I assess it's a bluff, unless it's an attack on a terminal," Gower said.
"There is nothing I've seen in the Iranian [Order of Battle] that could touch these cables, certainly not their submarines," former Royal Navy Commander Tom Sharpe told the Beeb. While diving would be a possibility, Sharpe said he concurred with Gower that the threat was likely a bluff."
The location of cables is clearly shown on charts, as all mariners know. Ship's regularly damage cables when they drag an anchor.
