This is the second time the Kamari has appeared in the area in the last two weeks carrying Kurdish oil.Two weeks ago, the same 1 million barrel tanker loaded Kurdish oil at Ceyhan before sailing to a point just under 200 km off the Israeli and Egyptian coasts.In June a cargo of Kurdish oil that sailed from Ceyhan aboard the United Emblem Suezmax tanker was delivered into Israel after being transferred at sea to another ship.In June, the SCF Altai tanker delivered 1 million barrels of Kurdish crude to Israel's Ashkelon port for an unknown buyer. It was the first successful delivery of Kurdish oil from the region's new pipeline to Turkey, though the KRG denied selling oil to Israel directly or indirectly.
