It became known about the seizure of Iranian tankers by the Americans going to Venezuela


US authorities seized cargo from four tankers supplying fuel to Venezuela from Iran. Reported by Al Jazeera.


A month ago, federal prosecutors in the American capital filed a complaint about the seizure of property, insisting that the fuel was sold by Iranian businessman Mahmoud Madanipur - he, according to authorities, has ties to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in Iran. On the territory of the United States, this organization is recognized as terrorist.

The four ships transported 1,1 million barrels of petroleum products to Venezuela, officials said. But the tankers never made it to this Latin American country, missing in action. The two ships are later seen off the coast of Cape Verde. Where the ships are currently located is not known for certain.

According to a source from The Wall Street Journal, four ships - Bella, Pandy, Luna and Bering - are now heading towards Houston.

In July, Iranian authorities announced the failure of American plans to blockade Venezuela and stop Tehran's oil supplies to Caracas. A month earlier, the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury Department put four ships and four companies on the list of sanctions for the delivery of Iranian oil products to Venezuela.

    I wouldn't be surprised if after that the US ships and cargoes start having problems in the Persian Gulf. The United States behaves like a mad dog, trying to bite anyone who turns under the arm. It will end with the Yankees knocking out their teeth. Everyone who tried to rule the World ended badly, the Yankees are no exception.

    - But for this ... - the Americans are just fine fellows ... - They are doing useful work for Russia ...
    - There is nothing for Iran to do there ... - Iran and a cannon shot must not be allowed anywhere ...
    - Iran in general cannot be released for its Iranian territory ...
    - Of course ... - the Americans "are doing their own benefit" ... - in this way they also slow down the influence of China (and this again ... is a very great benefit for Russia) ...
    - So Russia should only rejoice at "such news" ...

    Al-Jazeera is, of course, a source that captivates with its novelty, I especially love the unnamed publications in the Reporter. Believe it or not. In general, one grandmother said.

      To be honest, I prefer Al Jazeera news than RT - there are less lies. In this case, Al Jazeera is right - the Americans stopped and emptied 4 tankers right under the nose of Iran, in the Strait of Hormuz.
      The operation was carried out without the military. They just threatened the captains / insurers with sanctions.

        I suppose you shouldn't throw such accusations. Remind Simonyan's words?

        If that's true, why throw a tantrum about RT? Does it hurt you so? Indeed, in this case, they have nothing to do with it. The reporter refers to Al Jazeera and not RT. winked

        The operation was carried out without the military. They just threatened the captains / insurers with sanctions.

        Does it matter if you bit them or lick them to death. They took someone else's cargo on the high seas. Based on a provincial court order. The thief should be in prison, the pirate should hang out on the yard.

        The cargo was intercepted Wednesday following a warrant issued by the US District Court following a July 2 complaint about the seizure of all oil products on board. The property is now under US custody, according to the Justice Department.
