Iran Tanker Seizures Seen as Part of Shadow War With America
New York Sun
…The initial tip to the DoJ that the Suez Rajan was evading America’s oil embargo against Iran came from United Against Nuclear Iran, an organization that monitors the Islamic Republic’s violations of sanctions. Intercepting the vessel’s oil smuggling seems to have then triggered retaliation, as the IRGC seized oil tankers in the gulf. We “strongly suspect that the seizure of the Niovi is related to a dispute over a shipment of Iranian oil,” UANI’s chief of staff, Claire Jungman, a “tracker of tricky oil tankers, especially from Iran,” tweeted. UANI has followed closely the Suez Rajan, Ms. Jungman told the Sun.
