TEHRAN (ISNA)- Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Ali Fadavi said the US cannot ignore the power of the new underwater-to-surface missile of the IRGC.

“The new weapon that we tested in the recent drill is a special one and Americans cannot ignore its power,” he said referring to the missile.

“We have obtained new and strategic weapons with special characteristics. Although the US says that it is not worried about the weapons, but it cannot hide its worries.”

Americans have considerably reduced the number of its forces in Persian Gulf comparing to previous years, he said, adding the US has deployed one million troops in the region during war in Kuwait, but now reduced them to 26.000 people with less logistic power.

The IRGC forces are watching the region round the clock, Fadavi said, adding although Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz are international zones, but Americans are not in a condition to threat Iran by means of Persian Gulf.

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) held major military maneuvers code-named the Great Prophet 9 in the south and the southwestern parts of the country late February.

As many as 10 military divisions, including units of ground forces, artillery, ammunition, missiles, drones, and reconnaissance jets, conducted operations in the drills.
