On Thursday 27th April, 2023 around 1315 hrs local time the US Naval Forces Central Command reported that the Marshall Islands flagged (MHL) tanker ADVANTAGE SWEET  was seized by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) while transiting international waters in the Gulf of Oman after the tanker issued a distress call during the seizure.

The seizure came after an unknown tanker collided with an Iranian vessel late on Wednesday in the Persian Gulf, causing several Iranian crew members to go missing and get injured, Iran’s Army said on Thursday. It added that the Iranian naval forces had later intercepted the fleeing ship in the Sea of Oman and directed it toward Iran’s coastal waters.
