Report: Iranian Gunboats Forcibly Detain Rescued Tanker Crew

Iranian gunboats reportedly tried to round up the crews of both tankers attacked Thursday in the Gulf of Oman, but were only able to take one crew into custody, according to a Fox News report and U.S. Central Command.
Sailors on the Front Altair were reportedly first rescued by the Hyundai Dubai, however, Iranian gunboats closed in and demanded the crew be turned over, U.S. Central Command said in a statement.
The statement said that aircraft dispatched to the attack site observed “an IRGC (Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps) Hendijan class patrol boat and multiple IRGC fast attack craft/fast inshore attack craft (FAC/FIAC) in the vicinity of the M/T Altair.”

The statement said that the Iranian craft acted aggressively.
“(T)he Iranians requested that the motor vessel Hyundai Dubai, which had rescued the sailors from the M/T Altair, to turn the crew over to the Iranian FIACs. The motor vessel Hyundai Dubai complied with the request and transferred the crew of the M/T Altair to the Iranian FIACs,” the statement said.

In the meantime, the statement said 21 sailors from the Kokuka Courageous were picked up by the Coastal Ace, a Dutch tugboat, and then transferred to the destroyer USS Bainbridge.
“While the Hendijan patrol boat appeared to attempt to get to the tug Coastal Ace before USS Bainbridge, the mariners were rescued by USS Bainbridge at the request of the master of the M/T Kokuka Courageous,” the statement said.

The 23 crew members from the Front Altair are now being held in Iran, Fox News reported.
Iran was quick to show an image of what it says is the sailors in good health.
Iran’s English-language Press TV showed film and images and said they were in “full health.”


“This video refutes false reports by some media outlets claiming that Iran avoided help the sailors working on the vessel,” Press TV said. It said that of the 23 people in the crew 11 were Russian, 11 Filipino and one Georgian.


It is unclear when the sailors will leave Iran.
USS Mason, a guided-missile destroyer, is now patrolling the area of the Gulf of Oman where the attacks took place.

The U.S. has blamed Iran for the attacks and on Thursday, released video of what it said was an Iranian vessel removing an unexploded mine from the hull of the Kokuka Courageous.
“You saw the boat. It has Iran written all over it,” President Donald Trump said during an interview Friday on “Fox & Friends.”
.

“They didn’t want the evidence left behind. They don’t know that we have things that we can detect in the dark that work very well. We have that. It was them that did it,” he said.
Iran has denied any role in the attacks.
“Fire has been contained on both tankers … We have sent experts to evaluate whether the crew rescued by Iran can return to (one) tanker,” Allahmorad Afifipour, head of ports in the Iranian province of Hormozgan, said, according to Reuters.

Meanwhile late Thursday, Yutaka Katada, president of Kokuka Sangyo shipping company which owns the Kokuka Courageous, said he doubted a mine caused the damage to his vessel.
“Our crew said that the ship was attacked by a flying object,” he said according to The New York Times.
He stated that the holes in the ship’s hull were above its waterline.
“There is zero possibility that they were torpedoes,” he said.

Seems too convenient to me. Japan had a waiver from the US to buy oil from Iran dispite sanctions. US revoked waivers May 1st. May 14 Japan meets with Iran in Japan to try to make arrangements to buy oil, bypassing sanctions. June 12 they meet again, this time in Iran. June 13 Iran attacks one of their only allies, Japan, while trying to sell said ally oil? Doesn't compute.

I'm just suspicious, that's all. I usually am and look for any party that benefits from an event as a likely or possible suspect. Like when they claimed Assad gassed those towns. It didn't make sense he would do that when the Syrian army had all but won the war and only weeks after Obama warned Assad to not use poison gas, being the only event that would draw the US into the war, even though up to that point no one had used poison gas at all. It was just a little too convenient in my mind.

So does Israel, dealing Nukes to rogue nations that is and they have stolen lots of our technology through spies and traitors. I'm still sticking to not quite believing that Iran bombed those ships. The US claims it was first mines, then torpedoes and Japan still says wrong, it was rockets or missiles. The grainy footage that I saw looked more like a rescue than sneaking an unexploded bomb off the ship. First how would they know? They were unloading the supposed bomb through a ripped hole in the ship? BS! And you don't go on a covert mission with 30 people sprawled all over a the supposed secret boat, some wearing life vests, some not. And why did the US use a night vision camera that appears to have came straight out of 1980. And I have personally never heard Iran say they back terrorist groups for a couple decades now. I have heard BB Nitwityahoo claim it but you know, his hat is just too small.
