LONDON - An Iraqi Kurdish crude oil tanker has reappeared off the coast of Israel having offloaded its cargo, ship tracking data on Reuters showed, in the latest sign the autonomous region is finding buyers for its oil in defiance of Baghdad.

It was not possible to determine who bought the oil or where it was sent to, but crude originating from Iraqi Kurdistan was delivered to Israel in June even though many Middle Eastern states refuse to trade with the country.

A spokesman for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) Ministry of Natural Resources did not respond to phone calls and emails seeking comment. The KRG has previously denied selling oil to Israel "directly or indirectly".
