Iran claims vessel carrying U.S. weapons seized in Persian Gulf

Iran claims vessel carrying U.S. weapons seized in Persian Gulf

Tehran, Feb 21 (Prensa Latina) Ahmad Ali Goudarzi, commander of Iran´s Border Guard, on Tuesday claimed that a vessel carrying US-made weapons, including swords was seized in the Persian Gulf.

Mr. Gudarzi, sent a message to Washington stating that “the terrorist army of the United States is not authorized to sail freely in these waters”, while stressing that the coastal nations are the ones who must take care of securing this strategic area.

He recalled this has not been the first time that US-made weapons have been seized, and informed that in the last four months alone, in confrontations with armed bandits in the border areas of the country, over 3,000 assault rifles, 578,000 rounds of ammunition, and 23 anti-tank guided missiles were confiscated.

The Iranian Armed Forces are more powerful than ever, monitoring all potential threats the country could face and he assured that security reigns in the 8,755 kilometers of borders.

The Persian government has always warned that securing the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz is its red line, so its Armed Forces keep constant monitoring of any movement.
