Iranian TV releases footage of UK flagged tanker being seized in Strait of Hormuz

Iran's Revolutionary Guard on Saturday released footage showing members of its forces seizing a British-flagged tanker at sea near Iranian ports in the Strait of Hormuz.

The footage shows commandos in black ski masks on board a helicopter before rappelling on to the Stena Impero's deck, while a number of speedboats surround the vessel.

The tanker was seized with a crew of 23 crew aboard, although none are British nationals.

Senior Iranian officials said on Saturday that Friday's seizure happened in response to Britain's role in impounding an Iranian supertanker two weeks earlier.

The seizure prompted condemnation from the UK and its European allies as they continue to call for a de-escalation of tensions in the critical waterway.

Iran Launches Underground Missiles as part of Staged Attack

Iran’s paramilitary Revolutionary Guard launched underground ballistic missiles as part of an exercise targeting a mock-up US aircraft carrier in the strategic Strait of Hormuz. The military drill, code-named "Great Prophet-14", caused two American bases to go on alert, amid heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington after a series of escalating incidents last year. The message behind this action was clearly aimed at the US, whose Navy routinely sails into the Persian Gulf from the Strait of Hormuz. Report by Avagninag.
