On Wednesday, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced the arrest of two fishing vessels in the regional waters of Japhar and Kanark.

“The Imam Ali Naval Unit of the Sea Corps of the Revolutionary Guards stopped two fishing vessels that had anchored in the waters of the Japhar and Kanark regions and committed a flagrant violation by entering the 12-mile zone, and they were practicing prohibited trawl fishing,” the public relations of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards naval force said in a statement, as quoted by the Fars News Agency of the Islamic Republic.

The statement said that “these two ships were seized as part of a process of forwarding the marine mobilization and the elements of Imam Ali Al-Bahri’s headquarters, in implementation of a judicial ruling issued by the Kanark Prosecution office following the protest of the local fishermen in the region.”

These two ships were carrying more than 80 tons of various types of fish, and they were transferred to the marina of Imam Ali Al-Bahri affiliated to the Revolutionary Guard Corps, to take legal measures.

Iran had recently announced that its navy had stopped a foreign ship in the Gulf waters, on charges of smuggling fuel and seizing 12 sailors of Filipino nationality.

Furthermore, Iranian television reported, “Iran stops a fuel smuggling ship carrying 283,000 and 900 liters of smuggled fuel at its coast,” adding that “those who were on the ship, 12 people of Filipino nationality, have been arrested and are being investigated to bring them to justice.”

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling

  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
