UK tanker British Heritage, reportedly the target of an interception attempt by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards
In the past three months, tankers have been attacked in a UAE port and the Gulf of Oman. An Iranian supertanker was seized by UK and Gibraltarian forces at the mouth of the Mediterranean. And on Wednesday, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards may have tried to intercept a British tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.
Is this an Iranian confrontation not only with the US but also with the UK?
I talk through the situation with South Africa’s Radio Islam, as well as discussing the politics around the resignation of the UK Ambassador to the US Kim Darroch.
