TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian coast guard units seized three Saudi vessels after
they illegally entered Iran's territorial waters, the Iranian police
officials announced on Tuesday.

Commander of Bushehr Coast Guards Qalandar Lashkari said two dhows were
tracked and confiscated after their illegal entry into Iran's territorial
waters and all their 10 crew members were arrested.

He added that initial investigations showed that the vessels are from Saudi
Arabia but their captains and crews are Indian nationals.

Investigations also showed that the vessels had crossed Iranian water
borders for fishing purposes.

Lashkari added that the development came a week after forces of the second
naval zone of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) confiscated another
Saudi vessel and arrested its 4 crews after they had illegally cross Iranian
borders.

He said the first vessel was later expelled from Iran's waters.
