Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group seizes foreign tanker in the Gulf, kidnaps 7 crew members
BREAKING: Iran’s Revolutionary Guards terror group seized another foreign vessel in the Persian Gulf and kidnapped its crew members.
Flag of the vessel is unknown.
Seven foreign crew members have been kidnapped.
A Royal Navy warship arrived last week in the Persian Gulf to accompany British-flagged ships passing through the Strait of Hormuz, amid tensions after Iran seized a British tanker in the Persian Gulf earlier this month.
The US asked Germany to join the military mission to safeguard the Strait of Hormuz, according to the US Embassy in Berlin.
Iran recently started enriching uranium beyond a limit established in a 2015 nuclear agreement with world powers, a deal from which Trump withdrew. Trump has since intensified economic sanctions on Tehran, and tensions have escalated.
