Iran warns, if Israel acts against oil shipments

Iran will respond firmly to any Israeli naval action against its oil shipments, Iran's defence minister said, a week after Israel warned its navy could act against what it called Iranian oil smuggling to evade US sanctions.

US President Donald Trump last year quit a nuclear deal with Iran and re-imposed some sanctions, aiming to cut Tehran's oil exports to zero.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told naval officers last week that Iran was still resorting to clandestine measures to ship fuel.

Iran's Minister of Defence Amir Hatami was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA that Tehran had the military capabilities to confront any Israeli intervention, and said the international community would also not accept such action.

Hatami said such confrontation would be considered as "piracy" and warned that "if it happens, we will firmly respond."

"The Iranian armed forces have certainly the capabilities to protect the country's shipping lines in the best way against any possible threat," Hatami said.
