Tehran, June 9, IRNA – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Tuesday that IRGC is ready to counter any type of aggression.
Speaking in a meeting with IRGC navy commanders, he noted that Iran’s enemies are in a weak position.
IRGC is ready to defend the country against any type of aggression in the Persian Gulf and Hormouz Strait, Fadavi noted.
The commander reiterated that Iran’s defensive capabilities have disappointed enemies.
In recent years, Iran’s Navy has increased its presence in international waters to protect naval routes and provide security for merchant vessels and tankers.
In line with international efforts against piracy, the Iranian Navy has also been conducting patrols in the Gulf of Aden since November 2008 in order to safeguard merchant containers and oil tankers owned or leased by Iran or other countries.
Iran’s Navy has managed to foil several attacks on both Iranian and foreign tankers during its missions in international waters.
