2019, July 21 -- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)  has released a video how a special force boarded the British tanker "Stena Impero" from a helicopter.

2019, July 20 --
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) released a video that in the time on July 18 show inspected warships (including USS "Boxer") and tankers in the Persian Gulf, hours before the destruction of the mysterious drone. Contrary to the statement that it was a drone (UAV) in the video, a revealing sequence in the video proves it was an Iranian helicopter  equipped with a moving camera. Drones have wheels and not skids.

2019, July 19 -- T
he leadership in Tehran has announced in early July consequences for the hijacked Iranian oil tanker "Grace 1" by the British Navy off Gibraltar. Iran has now hijacked a British tanker in the Gulf of Hormuz. The British-flagged "Stena Impero" was escorted to Iranian coast. That is the right answer  for Trump's "poodle". Britain should not interfere in Trump's personal "war" against Iran.

2019, July 18 -- According to President Trump, the naval vessel "USS Boxer" destroyed an "Iranian" drone over the Strait of Hormuz because it had come too close to the ship. Tehran counters that Iran is not missing a drone. The provocateur (not Iran) is active again. This time he intentionally sacrificed a drone.
