Breaking News Royal Marines Stop Iranian Oil Tanker Bound for Syria

Oil Tanker Bound for Syria Detained in Gibraltar

BBC News 4 June 2019



The oil tanker is suspected of carrying crude oil to Syria


Royal Marines have boarded an oil tanker on its way to Syria thought to be breaching EU sanctions, the government of Gibraltar has said.

Authorities said there was reason to believe the ship, called the Grace 1, was carrying crude oil to the Baniyas Refinery in Syria.

The refinery is subject to European Union sanctions against Syria, the chief minister of the government said.

Fabian Picardo commended the bravery of the marines who detained the ship.

"Be assured that Gibraltar remains safe, secure and committed to the international, rules-based, legal order," he said, thanking the police, customs and port authorities for their involvement in detaining the ship.




The British overseas territory of Gibraltar stands at the gateway to the Mediterranean ...


Gibraltar port and law enforcement agencies detained the super tanker and its cargo on Thursday morning with the help of the marines.

The BBC has been told a team of about 20 marines, from 42 Commando, were flown from the UK to Gibraltar to help seize the tanker, at the request of the Gibraltar government.

A defence source described it as a "relatively benign operation" without major incident.

Mr Picardo said he had written to the presidents of the European Commission and European Council to give details of the sanctions that have been enforced.


'Firm action'

The Baniyas refinery, in the Syrian Mediterranean port town of Tartous, is a subsidiary of the General Corporation for Refining and Distribution of Petroleum Products, a section of the Syrian ministry of petroleum.

The EU says the facility therefore provides financial support to the Syrian government, which is subject to sanctions because of its repression of civilians since the start of the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad in 2011.

The refinery has been subject to EU sanctions since 2014.

A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said she welcomed the "firm action" by the Gibraltarian authorities.
