Seizure of Israeli-linked ship ‘retaliatory move’: Official

Tehran, IRNA — Iran’s Deputy President for Legal Affairs Mohammad Dehghan has described the seizure of the Israeli-linked ship as a ‘retaliatory move’.

Dehghan made the comment on the sidelines of the cabinet session on Wednesday about the seizure of the MCS Aries container ship.

Members of the Special Naval Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) have recently seized the MCS Aries container ship by carrying out a heliborne operation on the vessel’s deck, directing it towards Iran’s territorial waters.

It was a retaliatory operation against the actions of the United States and the Zionist regime, he said.

Zionist regime’s actions have been the root cause of Iran’s reactions, he added.

No legal action is on the agenda regarding the Zionist regime's attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, the official said.

On April 13, the IRGC announced firing dozens of drones and missiles toward the positions of the Zionist regime in occupied Palestine in response to the Israeli attack against Iran’s consulate in Damascus, Syria, a few days earlier.
