Head of the Yemeni Revolution Supreme Council Mohammad Ali al-Houthi

Yemen (IP) - The Head of the Yemeni Revolution Supreme Council described the authoritative action of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) navy against the US piracy operation in the Oman Sea as decisive and responsible.

Iran PressMiddle East: Mohammad Ali al-Houthi wrote in a tweet on Wednesday night: "Iran's action to return its oil is decisive and responsible."

Referring to the close confrontation between the IRGC navy and the American ship, he said that it shows Iran's deterrence, readiness, and rapid action. With the timely and authoritative action of the navy of the IRGC, the operation of piracy and stealing Iranian oil was failed.

In doing so, the United States confiscated a tanker carrying Iranian oil exports in the waters of the Oman Sea and diverted its oil shipment to another tanker to an unknown destination.
