Iran unveils most modern mine-sweepers

Iranian Navy has held its special training operations of new mine-sweeping system in the vicinity of east of Strait of Hormuz, Iran’s Mehr news agency reported.

Brig. Gen. Attaollah Salehi, commander of the Islamic Republic of Iran Army and Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari Army naval commander attended to the special operations of new mine-sweeping system, east of Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman.

In this operation, after the enemy forces laid mines around the neighboring Iran, special Navy units discovered them when they were carrying out patrolling and reconnaissance in the area.

They used subsurface exploration equipment to make sure of the presence of mines. Then the new mine-sweeper system made by the Islamic Republic of Iran, neutralized and detonated the mines planted in the area using helicopter units.

By making this system operational, Iran will join the few countries in the world that has mine-sweeping capabilities to neutralize mines both on surface waters or hunting them.
