Saudi's contacted them and offered to have them station the oil tanker at one of their ports but they ignored Saudi calls and are traveling back to Iran spilling that oil all throughout the Red Sea.
I guess they don't want a real investigation

Look at this, they are claiming to have caught the attack on video and threatening a 'regional country':

Rouhani said an Iranian tanker, the Sabiti, damaged in the Red Sea on Friday had been hit by at least two rockets, and adding that the incident had been caught on video. There has been no independent report on the cause of the damage.

Iran’s rival Saudi Arabia has said it was not behind any attack on the tanker. Saudi authorities said they received a distress message from the vessel, but they added that it had switched off its transponder before they could assist.

Rouhani, speaking live on state television on Monday, said the attack was undoubtedly carried out by a government and that there would be consequences.

Here is the translation of his interview:

How did they manage to do that? UNLESS they were ready for it.

Right, I am guessing they sent one of their own vessels to fire some 107mm rockets at the tanker. Let's wait and see if they release an video. It makes zero sense that Saudi Arabia would fire some 107mm rockets to avenge the Aramco attacks.

It may be that the Iranian regime is trying to get creative to find an excuse to conduct another attack on Saudi Arabia or the UAE. And hoping this incident will grant them the 'right to respond' if you will. Saudi Arabia is likely undertaking precautions as we are speaking for such a scenario.

These pictures are making this mystery more interesting.
A square opening makes little sense, if it was any collision or explosion.

@Khafee what do you think now?

I can see the cuts right at the structural frame lining.
To me it looks like strikes by hammer.
Dent on top could be the first strike but than quick correction to go bit lower, may be reach issue.

This part is a scissor cut, angling towards the structure element lining and than continuing along side.
Many machine tools are available in market to cut a steel sheet.

Iran blames alleged tanker attack on Israel, US and Saudis

Senior MP says Tehran will present UN with ‘abundant documents’ showing ‘certain governments’ were behind last week’s explosions on ship in Red Sea

A senior Iranian lawmaker on Wednesday blamed Israel, the United States and Saudi Arabia for an alleged attack on an oil tanker last week off the Saudi coast and said he would take the complaint to the UN.

Tehran says the Iranian-flagged Sabiti tanker was hit by two separate explosions off the Red Sea port of Jeddah on Friday.

“The footages that the cameras mounted on the oil tanker have taken show that the attack has been carried out by the US, the Zionist regime and al-Saud,” MP Abolfazl Hassan Beigi was quoted saying by the Fars news agency.

Hassan Beigi, a member of the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy commission, claimed without evidence that the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia were alleging the Islamic State jihadist group or Afghanistan’s Taliban was behind the explosions in the Red Sea.

He also asserted Iran was in possession of documents pointing to the involvement of “certain governments” in the incident.

“There are abundant documents and evidence of interference of certain governments in the attack against the Iranian oil tanker and they will be presented to the UN and UN Security Council and the countries which played a role in the terrorist attack should pay the price for their deeds,” he said.

Also Wednesday, Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s National Security Council, warned there would be a “harsh response” to whoever was behind the explosions.
