Five Iran gunboats try to seize British tanker and fail

Boatjobsonly.com~ 7-10-2019   Iran gunboats try to take control of a British tanker “British Heritage” in the straits of Hormuz yesterday. The Tanker was surrounded by small Iran gunboats and told to alter it’s course into Iran waters. Little did the Iran Navy boats know that HMS Montrose a British Navy Frigate was providing escort and quickly came up from behind and trained it guns on the small Iranian boats and ordered them to back off or be sunk. The Iran boats retreated as they only want to attack unarmed vessels. Many speculate that this as an attempt of revenge after the British seized an Iran  tanker off of Gibraltar.  The tanker was carrying Iran oil to its ally Syria in violation of EU sanctions. A US aircraft filmed the entire event.
