After an attack by Iran off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, Boris sends in special soldiers.
BORIS JOHNSON has dispatched special forces to the UAE coast after a tanker was taken by a gang suspected of being Iranian-backed forces.
While the UK and its partners design a cyber strike reprisal, British special troops have been dispatched to the region off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.
According to three marine sources, Iranian forces seized the Asphalt Princess tanker, a charge denied by Iranian officials.
After being seized by British soldiers off the coast of the UAE, the ship is now secure.
A US Navy ship will also be dispatched to keep an eye on the situation.
“Boarders have abandoned the vessel,” the United Kingdom Maritime Trade Operations (UKMTO) reported of the possible hijacking. The vessel is secure. “The incident is over.”
The Asphalt Princess was “Underway Using Engine” on Wednesday morning, according to Refinitiv ship tracking data and AIS tracking.
The tanker was passing through the Arabian Sea on its way to the Strait of Hormuz, which transports a fifth of the world’s oil exports by sea.
International tensions have been high since the US, Israel, and Britain blamed Iran for a drone strike last week on an Israeli tanker that killed two crew members.
Iran has denied culpability for the murders again again.
Abolfazl Shekarchi, Iran’s senior military forces spokesman, rejected on Tuesday that the numerous events at sea and hijackings in the Gulf region were “a form of psychological warfare” that “laid the ground for future bouts of adventurism.”
Oman’s shoreline is still a contested and active location of ocean colonization.
As tensions and hijackings frequently escalate in tandem, British and American soldiers will have to remain vigilant.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee today voted in favor of legislation that would revoke congressional authorizations for previous Iraq wars.
This would be a huge step forward in lawmakers’ efforts to strip the White House of the power to declare war.
The bill would revoke authorizations for the use of military force that were passed during Saddam Hussein’s wars against Iraq.
Those in favor of repeal stated that Iraq’s present government should be considered as a partner rather than an adversary of the United States.
Opponents claimed that abolishing the law would convey a message of weakness to a volatile region, particularly Iran.
Senator Jim Risch, the senior Republican on Foreign Relations, stated, “I truly believe that it would be.” Brinkwire Summary News
