TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A brand new video launched by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard exhibits a British warship escorting a U.Ok.-flagged tanker being warned by the paramilitary troops to not intervene of their seizure of the industrial vessel earlier this month.
The practically two-minute video exhibits the British warship Foxtrot 236 throughout the escort and subsequent seizure of the Stena Impero by the Revolutionary Guard on July 19 within the Strait of Hormuz, the vital transport waterway between Iran and Oman.
Within the video, an Iranian officer is heard telling the British warship: “You might be ordered to not intervene in my operation.”
A British officer is heard telling the Iranian officer that the British warship is in worldwide waters with the service provider vessel conducting transit passage.
The Iranian officer responds: “Do not put your life at risk.”
