Iran has declared a ban on all vessels associated with the “Zionist regime” from operating in the Oman Sea and the Persian Gulf, effective immediately.

“Starting today, all vessels linked to the Zionist regime are banned from operating in the Oman Sea and the Persian Gulf. Any such vessels found in these waters will be confiscated,” declared Iranian authorities.

This announcement comes amid heightened tensions following recent military actions between Iran and Israel.

The statement follows recent missile and drone attacks launched by Iran against Israeli targets, which resulted in intercepted projectiles both within and outside Israel’s borders. Global leaders have called for restraint and diplomacy in response to escalating tensions in the region.

After the attack, Iranian Foreign Minister reiterated the country’s stance on the recent missile strikes targeting Israeli military bases, calling them a legitimate act of defence guaranteed by the United Nations Charter.

“Attacking military bases in the Zionist entity is a legitimate defense guaranteed by the United Nations Charter,” the Foreign Minister declared.

He emphasised Iran’s determination to protect the country’s sovereignty, unity, and national interests against any form of aggression. The Minister reaffirmed Iran’s readiness to take further defensive measures as needed to safeguard its interests.

“Our resort to defensive measures in exercising the right to self-defence proves our responsible approach to regional security,” he added.
