IRGC stops Italian, French ships in PG - Go Iran
The Islamic Revolution Guard Corps' naval patrol units have stopped an Italian and a French vessel in the Strait of Hormuz and inspected them.

The two vessels were inspected by the IRGC forces during a military maneuver on Friday for verification that they complied with environmental regulations.

The vessels were allowed to continue sailing after confirmation that they had not breached any regulations, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported.

The IRGC has been holding the third day of a major military exercise dubbed 'Great Prophet 5' in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.

The IRGC's naval, air and ground forces have been taking part in the drill, seeking to display Iran's constructive role and the country's military power in securing the strategic region.

The Strait of Hormuz, a narrow waterway between Iran and Oman, connects the Persian Gulf with the Sea of Oman. Nearly 40 percent of the world's crude oil passes through this waterway.

blumerl Off hand I'd say that someone is cruising for a bruising.

BTW: It's not called the PG or Persian gulf anymore.

Zec 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Psa 9:17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, [and] all the nations that forget God.
Jer 6:2 I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate [woman].
STOCK UP NOW. You should have at least 6 months worth of basics for every member of your household. Stay away from crowds when trouble starts, do not forget water storage, tobacco is worth more than gold or silver, and be kind to hungry children.

Israel was doing the same kind of thing, only it was not a drill, and in one instance... Israel mounted an attack on an American ship... The USS Liberty! Oh, but that's OK... Just find an excuse to pound Iran, any excuse..

Slight difference there was a war in progress at the time. The USS Liberty was outfitted as a spy ship and that is just what it was doing. Its information was being transmitted to Israels assailants. Hardly what one ally does for another but then if you want to go with the winner you keep a foot in both camps. We got caught doing just that!
