My understanding is these were Iranian magnetic mines. One was reportedly still clinging to the side of one of the tankers. Apparently a dud. Same as used a couple weeks ago against two tankers in UAE. I believe the Iranians are simply trying to see how far they can push with "deniable" activities.
