  • Iran’s IRGC seizes foreign vessel transporting smuggled fuel
In southern Iranian waters, the IRGC Navy confiscated a foreign tanker carrying two million liters of illicit fuel. Commander Heidar Honarian Mojarad stated that the vessel, which was carrying the flag of an Oceania country, was seized off the coast of Bushehr in response to a court order. Fourteen crew members from two Asian countries have been arrested. The stolen diesel cargo was turned over to the National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution Company in Bushehr Province. The vessel had been monitored since loading and was detained as it entered the IRGC's Second Naval Zone operational region. The IRGC Navy uses modern detecting tools to track movements in the Persian Gulf and has successfully thwarted multiple attacks in the region in recent years.
