IRGC’s New Vessel Intercepts US Warships in Persian Gulf
A new military vessel of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy has blocked the path of two American warships as they intended to sail into the Persian Gulf last week, a senior commander said.
In an address to a cultural ceremony in Iran’s northern province of Gilan, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Reza Tangsiri said his forces have manufactured a new vessel, named after late IRGC serviceman Habib Rouhi.
The missiles of the new naval vessel have a range of 300 kilometers, he added.
The commander said the new missile-launching vessel prevented two American warships from entering the Persian Gulf and ordered them to identify themselves last Monday, December 5.
The Iranian military forces are firmly standing against the enemies and force the Americans to sail through the courses that Iran has defined in the Persian Gulf, he added.
The commander also noted that the US forces will continue to receive “slaps in their faces” from Iran as long as they maintain their arrogant and cruel nature.
