Iran: US oil blockade, IRGC Navy and Strait of Hormuz

US President Donald Trump decided yesterday (22/4/19) to end waivers for countries importing oil from Iran as of May 2, 2019.

His Administration warned Japan, South Korea, Turkey, China and India that they would be no longer exempted from US sanctions if they continue importing oil from Iran.

This is considered as a US move to complete oil blockade on Iran.

But what about the Iranian reaction, notably that of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and what about the navigation through the Strait of Hormuz?

Tactical Report has prepared a 354-word report to provide answers.
