Iran Revolutionary Guard Claims to Seize Foreign Oil Tanker

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) seized a foreign oil tanker they say was smuggling fuel to some Arab states, Iranian news outlets reported on Sunday.

Seven sailors were on board the ship which was carrying 700,000 litres of oil, according to Press TV and al-Mayadeen.

Iranian authorities seized a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz last month, with Foreign minister Javad Zarif arguing the country was “upholding international maritime rules.”
