The IRGC navy today seized two Greek tankers in the azure waters of the Persian Gulf.
The General Public Relations of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps announced this news in a statement:
The IRGC navy on Friday seized two Greek tankers for violations in the azure waters of the Persian Gulf.
The two Greek tankers seized in the Persian Gulf are called the Prudent Warrior and the Delta Poseidon.
The two ships were seized in the Persian Gulf, one near Assaluyeh and the other near Bandar Lengeh near the island of Hindurabi.
The Iranian move came after the Greek embassy's ambassador to Tehran was summoned to the Foreign Ministry and asked to refrain from piracy.
Greece seized an Iranian-flagged ship last month. Reuters claimed that Greece had delivered the oil to the United States.
