Donít interfere in my operation: IRGC boat warns UK warship
Press TV - Iranís Islamic Revolutionary Guards Crops (IRGC) has for the first time released audio and video of its naval forcesí warnings to a British Royal Navy warship to stay out of their way, during an operation to seize a UK-flagged oil tanker for violating international laws in the Persian Gulf earlier this month.

In the brief audio clip, released Monday morning, British warship HMS Montrose (F-236) is heard declaring its position "in the vicinity of international waters" as it escorted the oil tanker Stena Impero.

The IRGC seized the British tanker near the Strait of Hormuz on July 19, after it tried to flee the scene of a major collision with an Iranian fishing boat.

ďThis is the IRGC Navy patrol boat, donít put your life in dangerĒ the Iranian operator is heard warning the British warship as it tries to prevent the tankerís seizure.

ďThe tanker ... is under my control,Ē the IRGC operator continues. ďYou are ordered to not interfere in my operation.Ē

The clip also features aerial footage from the standoff recorded by an Iranian surveillance drone flying over the area.
