Can Tehran actually block the Strait of Hormuz and provoke US-Iran War? After the US withdrew from the JCPOA Deal (Iran Nuclear Deal), the US is constantly threatening Iran and its allies with stringent economic sanctions. Hitting aggressively back at the US, Iran has refused to give in to pressures and threatened severe repercussions, including blocking oil transit routes through the strategic, Strait of Hormuz.

As reported by Reuters, Iran will move to block the Strait of Hormuz if the US-Iran conflict ends in sanctions on Iran. The Strait of Hormuz will be then blocked for the movement of oil from the Persian Gulf.
The deputy commander of the Sarallah military base said that Iran would not let any oil shipment pass the Strait of Hormuz if the US goes ahead with the sanctions. After withdrawing from the Iran Nuclear Deal, the US promised to reimpose sanctions on Iran as well as add new ones.
