IRGC Shares Footage Of Its Personnel Boarding Oil Tanker Meters Always From US Warships

Speedboats of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are seen during major drills in the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf code-named the Great Prophet 9 on February 25, 2015.

The Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has shared footage showing its personnel boarding an oil tanker in the Sea of Oman a few hundred meters away from US Navy warships.

In a statement released on November 3 morning, the revolutionary guards claimed that its Navy Force thwarted an attempt by the US Navy to steal an Iranian oil shipment.

According to the statement, the US confiscated a tanker carrying Iranian oil in the Sea of Oman and unloaded the oil to another tanker and direct it to an unknown destination. The IRGC Navy reacted quickly and managed to land special forces aboard the tanker, the Vietnamese-flagged tanker Sothys, which was moved to Iranian waters.

The footage released by the IRGC shows Iranian personnel boarding the oil tanker right in front of two US Navy destroyers, USS Michael Murphy and USS Michael Murphy.

A US defense official confirmed to Newsweek that Iran seized an oil tanker in the Sea of Oman last week. However, he dismissed the IRGC’s story.

“We’re refuting the Iranian claims that they prevented us from taking back this vessel,” the official said. “Here’s the bottom line: This occurred last week. U.S. naval forces in the Gulf of Oman observed Iranian naval forces seize this oil tanker.”

“There were over 10 Iranian fast boats that swarmed this thing,” the official said. “There was a helicopter seen flying around, and, bottom line, our forces responded to monitor the situation.”

According to the official, the US Navy didn’t intervene and take action against the IRGC’s naval forces “due to a number of sensitivities.”

The incident demonstrates Iran’s growing influence in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman. It also raises some serious questions about US Navy operations in the region.

Despite Washington’s decision to ignore the incident, the upcoming talks on Tehran’s nuclear program in Vienna will likely be affected by it.

Most Frisians actually are marsh citicens from Holland. The danish part almost is integrated and gone. It was/are a small thing finger of them.

Frisishe haf is DEUTCH and a part of West Slesvig, which was danish until Presussen took it in 1864 but because of the danish/germans living in the fertile parts of it and a stupid danish king.

Unfortunatly we have had several bad old trations for killing birds and the North sea by oil. As usual it also by that make sense to replace parts of that transportations with windpower. They do in all Friis land all the way from Denmark to Holland and belgium and still building out.

In some parts the sky is full of rotating powerstations, so they replace them with bigger ones. The fish seemes not to care.

The sea there is relative clean and fishing is done there. We unfortunatly has a lot of incomming plastic at the coast and has to clean for all that transportation.

I think its exiting to see old destinations again. I was at the big swedish Island named Gotland some few years ago. I was there as 11 years old child by tent by my parents. The old things and by the nature and ruins were kept well.

Ther was much more tourisme and by that a lot of sommerhouses and hotels. The museums were updated very well. I never has seen so many old silver coins and gold. There were many Kufa Dirhams from Iraq. They were in kilos.

Many says the arabs has their light skins from the many slaves they bought from us:(

The video only is a part of it and very biased. What do you comapre with? The Russian or Chinese recolusions. Sure there was many losses.

What do You compare with. Livingstandards in USA today by GDP is number 5.

I do disagree what happend there and if was and american i would be a Sanderds with no communist hunting and with taxing the rich ones better.

I do understand Your jewish trauma well. It says You dont like people work hard in school, the parents by that can educate their people or the country by tax, its a msut to get at job after what you can instead on ineffective family sytstems as well as its rewarded by pay pr hour.

Thats how they and we do. Its works for Denmark too. The difference is we have had no hunting like by MaCharty or Hoower.

You seemes to ignore the good reforms and things actually collapsed in 1929. Thye also split up the Megacompanies, where several actually was owned by jews.

You don’t understand how most of the narrative you side with comes from the countries you think are “nazis” and “zionists”.

The people on here are only partially based, which is the same with South Front itself. The people who follow South Front are the type who should know better about the Jew and not use “Nazi” as a derogatory term because they are in agreement with “Nazis” on most things, but they still believe the fairytales that their common enemies made up about “Nazis”.

South Front is westerners who don’t understand Russia. When they see Russia and Russians talk about “Nazi’s”, they don’t realize that in Russia the western cartoon version of WWII history is not popularized, and Russia itself is a National Socialist state and so are the Donbass Republics. The problem is that most people cannot see past symbols and labels. They don’t understand that in Russia, it is understood widely that the western version of WWII isn’t even remotely correct, and that the Axis were not comic book villain’s, but they still support their country in a particular war. Just as in 1940 a Greek National Socialist supporter of Metaxas can still fight for his country against Germany, but not be fundamentally opposed to their system. Its not an ideological dispute, its a geopolitical one.

You view everything from a highly simplistic 2-dimensional, black and white perspective, caused by a lack of knowledge and experience. There’s no way you are older than your early 20s at the very most.

I am here, you told me to answer you in the latest comment.

Your perception of civil war is different from the one of separatism. In my opinion separatism is part of civil wars almost every time.

In this case of Saudi Arabia, if you read history you will see that those states that border it had problems with them.

Some time ago the conflict was ideological but now it is mostly ethnic because most of the countries in the region, except for Syria, profess moderate Islam. Nasserism/Ba’athism and Salafi jihadism are mostly gone.

The Cold War was the only war in human history that wasn’t ethnic but purely ideological.

The next battle will be ethnic/cultural in origin.

I dont believe the iranian story one bit.
If the US had seized this oil tanker or were in charge of this oil tanker or whatever was going on then:
THERE WOULD BE US NAVY SAILORS ON BOARD THE TANKER…

Since there were NONE, I would be more willing to believe that this was a iranian training mission and propaganda stunt….

Peter Wallace

Yes I think there is some confusion on this. The previous week “apparently” the US seized a tanker and this one supposedly was to thwart another attempt. Certainly does look like a training exercise/ video. The US says they “observed ” the Iranians seize this vessel but did nothing to stop it and only observed the act.
When the helicopter is coming into land there is already a cameraman onboard the ship filming from that angle as well as a camera man aboard the chopper. Both US vessels are named USS Michael Murphy. No wonder the Yanks are confused .. Looks like too much bull manure from both sides so I will go get some salt.

Rhodium 10

The iranian tanker has unloaded petrol on a Vietnamite petrol vessel ( they have did the same in Aden gulf and near Indonesia to avoid Irani ports and therefore USA can warn to seize that ships in “Friendly countries” beside be sanctioned)…then US navy warned Vietnamite tanker Sothys to stop and change the route ( surely to divert the boat to Bahrein)…then IRGC special forces intervened and took control of the ship!

But if Yankee terrorists managed to steal the oil then they were successful.. sure the Iranians got their ship back but the terrorist scum made off with the oil.

farbat

it was a saudi ship attempted to be seized by the usa and blamed on iran but iran seized the terrorists who tried to seize it together with the ship and i guess it was american special forces but again it could be british aswell who knows america certainly does seem annoyed by it

this vessels owner seems to be ksa and unidentified troops boarded this ship they all were americans and iran boarded them and seized them together with the ship we know it was either americans or british special forces so why do you americans and foolish british put your peoples lives on the line for nothing in return

Ahson

where are IRGC pictures of captured hillbilly from the tanker?

farbat

the captain seems to be involved the captured terrorists were irregular according to reports unidentifiable at first look they were basically flagless therefore there was no need of them being shown since there were no flags there was no reason to show prisoners but that doesnt mean that america or britain wont be furious

Yanky ball suckers tried to steal Iranian oil, but ended up getting their asses handed to them. To avoid the humiliation of what happed, Yanky ball suckers put out the statement.. “our forces responded to monitor the situation.”

ffs..

farbat

the message of it being iranian oil is fake news it was a saudi tanker and a newly buyed one of theirs

farbat

who knows it might turn into an iranian tank now considering that the al saud seized tankers and oil of iran in the past specially in the red sea and around yemen iran might just keep it

expect the gas prices in america and in britain to go up and expect canada to be raped by them australia might be preserved to challenge china but canada is going to be eaten for their survival

Iran pretended to invade their own ship to not loose face to the entire world, because we demanded them to sail their sanctioned bs oil back to their own sewage waters.

Peter Wallace

Yeah , whatever. Keep trying as you might get one right one day which will be a fluke at best.

Can anyone get this story straight and clarified?
The Americans boarded Tanker A and transferred its contents to the Vietnamese flagged Tanker Sothys (Where?) then the IRGC boarded the Sothys (Where?) and sailed it to Iran and took back the contents?

What was Tanker A and where was it loaded and does anybody know where it was bound?

Im surprised that these tankers leaving Iran are not guarded by security, equipped to repel even helicopters?

Christian J. Chuba

Iranian oil was transferred to the Vietnamese tanker, a common practice by Iran to evade illegal U.S. sanctions.
Iran’s account: ‘The U.S. took this tanker into custody, probably by converging on it with ships and radio contact. The IRGC got boots on the ground and convinced the captn that he would be better off ignoring the USN. The IRGC beefed up their naval presence w/speedboats’.

USN account: ‘The IRGC boarded the Vietnamese tanker and piloted it into their waters for some unknown reason’

There were no U.S. military on the tanker. There was no gunfight or POWs.

IMHO

YAWN.

Knowthetruth

“According to the official, the US Navy didn’t intervene and take action against the IRGC’s naval forces “due to a number of sensitivities.”

Oh sure, of course, gutless cowards and scumbags are only good for killing Afghani children from afar with drone strikes, pathetic as*holes.
