Iran will respond fast and firmly to any action by Israeli against its oil shipments, Iran's defence minister said,just few days after Israel warned it could act against what it called "Iranian oil smuggling to evade US sanctions".
US President D. Trump last year pull US from a nuclear deal with Iran and reimposed sanctions, with goal to cut iran's oil exports to zero.
But,US sanctions are unilaterar action not approved by UN security cuncil in any resolution ,and as such, are not mandatory for other nation.
only UN security cucncil has power to legaly impose sanctions on some country.
Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said last week that Iran was still resorting to clandestine measures to ship fuel.

Iran's Minister of Defense Amir Hatami told state news agency IRNA that iran have the military capabilities to respond and confront any Israeli intervention, and said the world would also not accept such action.
Hatami said any action against Iran oil shipment would be considered ilegal and "piracy" ,also warned that "if it happens, we will firmly respond."
Hatami said:
"The Iranian armed forces have certainly the capabilities to protect the country's shipping lines in the best way against any possible threat," 
Israel threat is very strange considering fact that israel has very small navy with only few submarines and corvetes capable for such action.The Israeli navy, whose largest vessels are missile corvettes and a small submarine fleet, is mostly operate in the Mediterranean and Red seas.
On other side iran has one of the world?s biggest oil tanker fleet and Iran navy is one of the largest in the world,ranking in world top 10.
Iran's navy has extended its naval operational range in recent years, dispatching vessels to the Indian Ocean and the Gulf of Aden. They intervened on Friday to repel pirates who attacked an Iranian oil tanker in the Gulf of Aden.
This warning from Israel prime minister is probably motivated by israel internal events and coming elections.
