IRGC Seizes Trespassing Saudi Vessel

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ naval force has seized a Saudi vessel after it entered Iranian territorial waters in the Persian Gulf.
The vessel, which had set off from the Saudi port of Dareen, was seized in the waters off the southern Iranian province of Bushehr on Friday, an informed source told Fars News Agency.
The source added that the vessel crew members were detained and that investigations are underway.
Iranian security forces closely safeguard the Islamic Republic’s territorial waters and will not allow anybody to illegally enter Iran’s waters, the source said.
Last month, the Interior Ministry’s director general for border affairs, Majid Aqababaei, said Saudi Arabia’s coastguard had opened fire on Iranian fishing boats in the waters south of Iran and killed a fisherman.
The incident happened after two Iranian boats fishing in the Persian Gulf strayed from their course due to big sea waves.
