US says Iran took mine off tanker

The U.S. military on Friday, June 14, 2019, released a video it said showed Iran's Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded limpet mine from one of the oil tankers targeted near the Strait of Hormuz, suggesting the Islamic Republic sought to remove evidence of its involvement from the scene.

The US military released a video on Friday, stating that the Revolutionary Guard of Iran has been shown to removing an unexploded limpet mine from one of the oil tankers targeted near the Strait of Hormuz,, suggesting the Islamic Republic sought to remove evidence of its involvement from the scene. Iran denies being involved, accusing the U.S. instead of waging an “Iranophobic campaign” against it.


The US Navy ran away from Iran's coast to help the ships trapped in Oman Bay, which included an explosion.


Operators of the ships did not immediately give an explanation on who or what is the reason for damage against Norwegian-owned MT Front Altair and Japan-owned Kokuka bravery. Each was filled with petroleum products, and the front altitude was burnt up for hours, sending a column of thick, black smoke.
