Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said on Friday that its navy had captured the British-flagged oil tanker, Stena Impero, according to Iran’s state-run Press TV. This is the video of that vessel being captured.

LONDON, ENGLAND – Britain said Iran seized two oil tankers in the Gulf on Friday (July 19) and told Tehran to return the vessels or face consequences in the latest confrontation to ratchet up tension along a vital international oil shipping route. New visuals of the incident have been released now by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.

For now, the British government is looking for diplomatic options to resolve the spiralling crisis in the Strait of Hormuz.

“We’re not looking at military options. It is in Iran’s best interest to ensure freedom of navigation in the Strait of Hormuz”

British government spokesperson

The High Commission said that UK ships have been advised to stay out of the Strait of Hormuz for an interim period.
