(Worthy News) - The Royal Navy is drawing up plans to deploy marines to the Persian Gulf to protect British ships after a series of alleged Iranian attacks on oil tankers in the region.

Whitehall’s Cobra security committee is expected to meet this week to discuss the escalating situation and proposals to dispatch Royal marines. [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More...) ]
