Iranian Officials Again Threaten Closure of Strait of Hormuz

JewishPress Logo

Two Iranian officials on Monday reiterated threats that their country would block the Strait of Hormuz, in retaliation for oil sanctions on the Islamic theocracy.

The remarks were made in anticipation of the EU decision to institute an oil embargo on Iran.

A day earlier, US aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln sailed through the Strait of Hormuz without incident. Iran appeared to be lowering the rhetoric in light of comments by a senior Revolutionary Guard Corps official acknowledging that the return of US carriers was “routine”.
