Teheran is conducting piracy and should be sanctioned for it, Israel’s Foreign Minister Israel Katz said on Saturday, after Iran’s Revolutionary Guards seized an Israeli-linked cargo ship in the Strait of Hormuz, Reuters reports.

“The Ayatollah regime of Khamenei is a criminal regime that supports Hamas’ crimes and is now conducting a pirate operation in violation of international law,” Katz said. “I call on the European Union and the free world to immediately declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guards corps as a terrorist organization and to sanction Iran now.”
