On Saturday, Iranian media reported that the British oil tanker "Masdar" had left its coast for Saudi ports, according to the official IRNA news agency.
The agency noted that the British vessel, which was traveling in the Strait of Hormuz with Iranian water, diverted its course at the Ras Tanura port in Saudi Arabia at dawn.
The public relations of the naval force of the Revolutionary Guard has announced the arrest of a second British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz.
The first unit of the Revolutionary Guards' 1st Marine Force was detained by a British oil tanker, Stina Ambo, as it passed from the Strait of Hormuz due to its non-compliance with international maritime laws, at the request of the Ports and Maritime Organization in the province of Hormuzgan.

These events came after the authorities of Gibraltar - a UK autonomous region - had been detained by the Iranian supertanker Grace 1 heading to Syria in violation of European sanctions, while Tahran said the tanker was sailing in international waters and was not going to Syria.
