The Saudi Navy has reportedly detained three members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from a boat seized on Friday evening. The boat allegedly approached Saudi Arbia’s offshore Marjan oilfield in an attempt to target it.

“This was one of three vessels which were intercepted by Saudi forces. It was captured with the three men on board; the other two escaped,” the Saudi Information Ministry statement said on Monday. “The three captured members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard are now being questioned by Saudi authorities.”

    Proof?

    • FlorianGeyer

      The proof is decades of Saudi, Israeli and US/NATO lies.
      Lies that are responsible for the deaths and injury to millions of innocent people in all the Middle East.

      You’d think somebody would a have cell phone. The Iranians most likely would. But their photos would be in Riyadh, or the USA, being investigated for espionage.

    The situation is untenable now for Salman, the Saudi backed rebels in Syria are starting to vote with their feet and make deals for cease fire against Saudi directions, they want a bigger war to shore up their flagging support, these captured sailors will probably turn out to be fishermen.

    Looks like Saudi trying fabricate provocation

    • Vader Hater

      If they actually caught Iranian soldiers….would that be fabrication?

      • Rodger

        You can capture them in Iranian waters for example.

        • goingbrokes

          And Saudis would capture no one. It would be israeli commandos in saudi gear.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      You are right. Most likely they are Iranian fishermen. For if they had engaged Iranian Revolutionary Guards, then the Saudi Arabian Navy would be at the bottom of the ocean by now do to Iran’s missiles and torpedoes.

        There was a story on the 17th I think about Iranian fishermen being killed by SA, I don’t know if either party were in Iranian waters.

  • Mikronos

    Is this the other side of an incident reported as Saudi coastguard killing an Irani fisherman?

  • Thegr8rambino
