This Tuesday, the commander of the Naval Force of the Iranian Army, Admiral Hosein Janzadi , says he has “all enemy ships, including the US, in the Persian Gulf region” under surveillance.
“We monitor all enemy ships, especially those in the United States, point by point from their origin to the moment they enter the region, ” Janzadi warned.
The Persian commander has also detailed that the unmanned drones of the Iranian Navy have captured tracking images of foreign ships entering and navigating daily in the region.
“We have complete images and a large archive of daily images and step-by-step traffic of the ships of the US-led coalition. (…) Both in the Persian Gulf and in the Oman Sea, ”he said.
Janzadi, highlights the high preparedness of the country’s Armed Forces to act accurately in times of high tension, such as the one during the retention of the British flag tanker for “violating international maritime norms and regulations” when crossing the Strait of Hormuz.
Last Friday, the Naval Force of the Guardian Corps of the Islamic Revolution (CGRI) of Iran reported the arrest of the British-flagged oil tanker Stena Impero for violating international maritime law while crossing the Strait of Hormuz, located in the Persian Gulf .
Janzadi, has detailed that the aforementioned vessel, contrary to the usual route, was entering from the route planned for the departure of vessels from the Persian Gulf, a practice that increases the risk of accidents with other vessels.
The naval chief, however, has stressed that the Persian Navy will respond to any force that threatens the country’s maritime borders in the Persian Gulf. “The enemy is watching us in some places, but he must expect a surprise from the point he cannot observe us,” he added.
