(Worthy News) – Iran’s naval forces on Thursday seized an oil tanker bound for Texas in the Gulf of Oman, a move that drew condemnation from the U.S. military at a time of heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy seized the tanker, Advantage Sweet, while it moved through international waters at 1:15 p.m. local time, U.S. Naval Forces Central Command said. The U.S. Fifth Fleet, which is tasked with monitoring maritime activity in the area, is monitoring the situation, according to U.S. naval forces.
Advantage Sweet had departed the Mina Saud port in Kuwait on Tuesday and was destined for Houston. The tanker issued a distress call during the seizure, U.S. naval forces said. [ Source: Wall Street Journal (Read More…) ]
