Iran Revolutionary Guards Deny Trying to Capture British Tanker

Jason Ditz Posted on July 11, 2019Categories NewsTags Britain, Iran, Pentagon

Claims of a confrontation near the Strait of Hormuz involving the British Heritage oil tanker are denied by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, who issued a statement, saying that there “has been no encounter with foreign ships including English ships.“

The British government suggested the HMS Montrose, a frigate, was present and verbally warned off the Iranian boats, which was successful. British officials say they do not intend to escalate tensions, nor do they intend to increase escorts of ships in the future.

Despite hype over the British Heritage confrontation, it’s not clear what really happened. Initial claims were that the HMS Montrose chased off at least five Iranian boats, and turned its guns on them. Now, officials say there were just three boats, and a verbal warning was all it took. Either way, Britain doesn’t see this as a major issue.

5. Excellent idea...just sink them next time and don't video it. Thus it never happened.

"Still no video footage as was claimed of this supposed "incident"... "
