Serhat TUNAR -TDO- British Defense Ministry announced that Iran's 3 boats in the Strait of Hormuz tried to stop the British oil tanker “British Heritage”, but the British battleship HMS Montrose in the Strait of Hormuz warned the boats.
According to a statement from the British Defense Department, Iranian boats returned after the verbal warning. The statement underlined that the British warship intervened between Iranian boats and the oil tanker.
According to the Iran's semi-official news agency, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards denied these claims.
As it is known, the tension between these two countries increased after the British detention of an Iranian flag tanker allegedly carrying oil to Syria in Gibraltar last week. After the event, Iran announced that this situation would have consequences for Britain.
