Iranian media: The Revolutionary Guards carried out a landing on an American oil tanker in the Sea of ​​Oman

Various Iranian media reported that the Revolutionary Guards seized an oil tanker that the US military tried to use to seize an oil shipment from another Iranian tanker in the Sea of ​​Oman.

The semi-official Fars news agency reported today, Wednesday, that US forces seized an Iranian tanker at sea and transferred its cargo to another US tanker before heading to an unknown destination.

And the agency added that the naval forces of the Revolutionary Guard, in turn, carried out a landing operation on the American tanker and took control of it, and immediately directed it to Iranian territorial waters.

The agency noted that several US military ships and helicopters tried to regain control of the tanker, but these attempts “failed to change the tanker’s course.”

The agency quoted the Iranian authorities as confirming that the seized tanker had reached Iranian waters, although “several US naval vessels intervened again with greater efforts to cut off the tanker’s path and change it.”

The Iranian “Al-Khabar” channel said that it would publish footage documenting the confrontation between the Revolutionary Guards and an American destroyer during the alleged incident.
