Iranian SOF boarding British ship Stena Impero in the Strait of Hormuz

Dramatic footage shows balaclava-clad Iranian Special Forces operators fast-roping onto British oil tanker “Stena Impero” in the Strait of Hormuz. Video released today captures the moment Iranian special forces abseil onto the stricken ship with 23 crew onboard last night.

The audio track in the background is tense radio exchange between HMS Montrose, Stena Impero and Iranian corps as they moved to seize the British oil tanker from the Strait of Hormuz.
