Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Kazem Seddiqi condemned the UK’s seizure of an Iranian oil tanker in the Strait of Gibraltar, saying that the UK will be punished by Iran’s “Slap,” speaking in Tehran on Friday.

“The UK’s audacity, carelessness and negligence will be soon answered by a slap at the powerful hands of the strong people in our system, which they will regret forever,” said Seddiqi.

According to reports, the British Royal Marines seized an Iranian oil tanker in the Strait of Gibraltar on July 4, on suspicion that it was taking oil to Syria, in violation of EU sanctions. Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi denied the accusations.
