Tehran has warned about the risks of the Israeli military participating in an international coalition being put together by the United States, which is aimed at boosting navigation security in the Middle East. Iran’s elite military force, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), has threatened not only to wage war at sea but also to seize any foreign vessels, even those under Western naval protection. Experts told that Iran could assume control over protected merchant vessels.

Axar.az reports citing Presstv that speaking about Iran’s prospects for capturing vessels, the analyst noted that despite the presence of British and US ships in the region this was quite possible given that Tehran has an advantage in choosing the location and has many bases there. The key issue is how the sides would react should the situation unfold under an unfavorable scenario. There will be a serious risk that the situation could quickly spiral into an armed confrontation.
