Iran’s Revolutionary Guards senior commander warned that it could seize a British oil tanker if an Iranian tanker detained in Gibraltar was not immediately released.

​Earlier in the day, Gibraltar official stated that there are no British Royal Marines on board the detained tanker Grace 1, adding that police and customs officials remained on board.

Official added that the 28-member crew, who have remained on board the supertanker, were mainly Indians with some Pakistanis and Ukrainians; he added that they are being interviewed as witnesses, but not criminals, in an effort to establish the nature of the freight and its final destination.

The Grace 1 vessel was detained on 4 June by Gibraltar police and customs agencies, along with the British Royal Marines.

Gibraltar’s Chief Minister Fabian Picardo stated that the government had sufficient evidence that the tanker was transporting crude oil to the Banyas Refinery in Syria.

While Brits are old pirates 😉 Even girls, e.g. Mary Read and Anne Bonny : Any way, it’s better if the Anglos deal with Iran : Erdogan has just transported 42 Leopard 2A4 tanks to Cyprus, Cavusoglu has threatened to fully invade the island and S-400 are about to arrive = The DeGaulle CVN and her Rafale-Ms will have it much easier to remove S-400 and will be more practical if we have to give a warning by blasting a nuke at 15km altitude over Ankara (no consequences : barely no fallouts and no serious damages at such a distance… Read more »

The Zionist criminals must really be worried. I have never seen so many trolls in my life. Never seen half these idiots before, but they all sound alike. At any rate, they waste their time, collecting their shekels as they sell themselves like the prostitutes they are. No matter, everyone knows who they are, even if they do have a dozen personas to upclick each other. No one is fooled. All I can say is, better get your shekels while you can, looks like your $hit is going downhill in a big way.

It would be appropriate for Iran to sanction oil from Saudi on humanitarian grounds and seize a BP tanker.

IRGC’s words about seizing a UK tanker is an act of piracy.

Especially since the tanker boarded by UK Marines isn’t Iranian…
But well, I double dog dare IRGC to seize a Brit tanker : my 2 cents they won’t have the bälls to touch the Yankee’s poodle… And if they do, let’s the shooting party begin, any way, postponing it would only play on the shitlamic republic side. Let’s send the mullahs to their 72 virgins, Gaddafi style. It will even be a long overdue.
