Iran warns of firm response if Israel acts against its oil sales

Amman, Iran will respond firmly to any Israeli naval acts against its oil sales, Iran’s Defence Minister said on Wednesday.

Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami said that such action would be considered “piracy” and warned that “if it happens, we will firmly respond,” according to the Islamic Republic News Agency( IRNA).

The minister’s remarks came a week after Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his country’s navy could act against Iranian oil “smuggling” to evade United States sanctions.
