Press TV: The footage relayed from the operation, meanwhile, depicts the involved American vessels and their crew in striking detail.

A statement issued by the IRGC’s public relations office, said after the heliborne operation by the IRGC, the US forces started pursuing the second vessel using several helicopters and warships. They, however, stopped short of capturing it.

The US forces then dispatched more warships to block the vessel that was carrying the stolen crude. “The Americans [though] decided against continuing the operation and left the area after understanding the brave and ardent fighters of the IRGC Navy’s readiness and resolve for confronting whatever adventurism and threat against the interests of the Iranian nation,” the statement added.

Thanking the Corps for the successful operation, Iran’s Oil Minister Javad Owji said “Iran’s enemies” had resorted to the act of piracy after realizing that the Islamic Republic was determined to export its fuel, despite the United States’ sanctions targeting the country.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) releases detailed footage of its confrontation late last month against an American act of piracy targeting an Iranian fuel shipment.

The incident took place on October 25, but news and footage of which were released on Wednesday.

During the episode, American forces confiscated the tanker that was carrying a cargo of Iranian oil in the strategic Sea of Oman, transferring its consignment of crude to another vessel.

The IRGC then staged a maritime operation against the second vessel, landing its helicopters on its deck and navigating the ship towards Iranian waters.

The footage depicts the incident in great detail, first showing the IRGC Navy’s intelligence command and intelligence gathering network detecting the vessel laden with the stolen crude.

This video grab shows IRGC speedboats approaching a vessel that contains Iranian oil that had been stolen by American naval forces.

The IRGC Navy is subsequently seen dispatching its rapid reaction units to the area to seize back the cargo.

The commandos then engage in a heliborne operation, which features their aircraft landing on the second vessel, the forces disembarking, and their recapturing the stolen consignment.

The IRGC Navy’s drone units, speedboats, and other vessels are, meanwhile, seen assisting the operation.

USS The Sullivans (DDG-68) and USS Michael Murphy (DDG-112), two American destroyers, are then seen approaching second tanker to prevent its recapture, but are warned away by the IRGC Navy.

  1. Glad to hear that it all worked out well. Crazy how the US military always lies now about any incident that might make it look less than the perfect war machine. That incident in the Black sea wherein an embedded British journalist described how the US ship was driven off by weapons fire comes to mind. According to the US Navy, didn’t happen at all. Even though it was on film, and attested to by a friendly journalist on the US Navy ship in question. It all smacks of the same despotism that our government stinks of. We are the baddies.

  2. My, what a departure from the US statement on this event. According to the US military practically nothing happened at all. Since there is Iranian video of this showing what went down, could the US military be lying? Oh, surely not. Then the ‘new boss’ came out and said that if Iran didn’t renegotiate the JCPOA, they would face more economic pressure. On Sunday, A-hole Blinkin said that Iranian intransigence regarding ‘renegotiation’ could result in military action. They keep pushing the nuke angle, but only are requiring Iran to include their conventional missiles. Why, isn’t this the very same Trump approach? Yeah, what was it Tramp said the other day about Israel no longer owning the US gov? I’d laugh if I wasn’t afraid I’d throw up.

    • Not sure what carrier group that was in the fast attack craft video, but the ship’s island looked a bit like Enterprise CV-65….If so, she was decommissioned quite a while back….???
