Tensions seem to be reaching a peak due to the increasing aggressive attitude of the Iranian Navy in the Persian Gulf. Iran says its military has increased patrols to thwart potential pirate and terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, Iranian media reports claimed that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards seized a ship trying to smuggle diesel on Saturday.
11 people on board the ship detained
Reports also say that 11 people aboard this ship have been detained. IRGC Col Ahmed Hajian said that brave fighters of Admiral Navy 412 Zulfiqar acted swiftly on intelligence inputs and intercepted a foreign Panamanian tanker. During this time this tanker was refueling inside Iranian territory in the Persian Gulf. The ship is capable of carrying more than 150,000 liters of diesel at a time.
Iranian helicopter hovers over US warship
A few days ago, an Iranian helicopter took off over the US Navy’s Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Essex, which was patrolling in the Persian Gulf. The Iranian Navy had issued a video of this incident and warned America properly. In the 42-second video, an Iranian helicopter was seen flying very close to the US Navy warship USS Essex. During this, people sitting in the cockpit of the helicopter also made a video of the American warship.
Iran said – our control over the Persian Gulf
Earlier this year, Rear Admiral Alirez Tangsiri, the naval commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), said that the Islamic republic has full control over the Persian Gulf and is dominating the entire region. Earlier this year there were also reports of firing between an Iranian ship and the US Navy.
Iran accused America of stealing oil
Iran accused the US of trying to steal its oil tanker in the Sea of Oman just a few days ago. Iranian media reports claimed that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) had foiled this attempt by the US military. Thousands of liters of crude oil was loaded on this tanker. Later the Iranian army brought this ship to the territorial border of their country. Iran did not say when the incident happened.
