BRITISH Special Forces have flown to the Middle East as part of a top secret mission to combat any Iranian attacks on merchant ships, it's been reported.
Members of the elite Special Boat Service (SBS) are said to have joined UK registered oil tankers sailing to the Persian Gulf.
Once there, they will be tasked with monitoring Iranian military activity around the island of Qesham which is home to the country's naval gunboats, claims the Sunday Express.
After the two SBS crews have passed through the Strait of Hormuz  it is reported they will be airlifted off by Royal Navy Merlin helicopters operating out of Oman.
When the Sun Online contacted the Ministry of Defence about the reports a spokesman said they never comment about the special forces.
The alleged military move comes as the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier strike group arrived for patrols in the Arabian Sea.
America has already deployed an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers to the Persian Gulf to counter alleged, still-unspecified threats from Tehran.

And the US is planning to deploy as many as 120,000 troops to the Middle East if Iran attacks American forces, a bombshell report claimed this week.
