Satellite Images Show US-pursued Iran Tanker Still off Syria

Satellite Images Show US-pursued Iran Tanker Still off Syria

Tuesday, 10 September 2019 09:40 AM EDT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — New satellite photos show an Iranian oil tanker pursued by the U.S. remains off the coast of Syria.

The images from Planet Labs obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press have the Adrian Darya-1 still near the port city of Tartus.

The images taken Sunday show another smaller vessel nearby.

The Adrian Darya 1, formerly known as the Grace 1, was carrying 2.1 million barrels of Iranian crude oil worth some $130 million.

Gibraltar earlier seized and held the tanker for weeks on suspicion of the tanker breaking European Union sanctions on Syria. The British territory later released the vessel after authorities there said Iran promised the oil wouldn't go to Syria.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi has been quoted saying the ship has unloaded its cargo, without elaborating.
