Little Satan UK’s navy says will escort British-flagged ships through Strait of Hormuz amid tensions

The UK Navy says it will accompany the British-flagged ships through the strategic Strait of Homuz, as regional tensions escalate in the wake of the US assassination of Iranian General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq.

London says the escort is aimed at providing “protection” for its commercial ships, as tensions run high in the region after the United States assassinated IRGC Quds Force Commander General Soleimani and top Iraqi commander Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in an airstrike near Baghdad Airport early Friday.
