Iran could seize British tankers in response

A senior commander in Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards warned on Friday that it would be Tehran’s “duty” to seize a British oil tanker if an Iranian tanker detained in Gibraltar was not immediately released.

British Royal Marines seized the supertanker Grace 1 on Thursday for trying to take oil to Syria in violation of EU sanctions, a dramatic step that drew Tehran’s fury and could escalate its confrontation with the West.

“If Britain does not release the Iranian oil tanker, it is the (Iranian) authorities duty to seize a British oil tanker,” Mohsen Rezai said in a tweet.
