On 18th May, Customs Today published a short article about the port where recently 4 ships, including 3 oil tankers were attacked.  Fujairah is the only emirate in the UAE that is located on the Arabian Sea, bypassing the Strait of Hormuz, which Iran has repeatedly threatened to close if a military confrontation with the US erupts.  If the strait is closed, the UAE will be able to continue exporting oil from Fujairah, whose port would become a lifeline.
