IRGC closely monitoring enemy vessels: Commander

Tehran, April 25, IRNA - A senior military commander says the naval forces of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) are closely monitoring all movements of foreign forces in the Persian Gulf region.

“The IRGC Navy will not be indifferent about any aggressive movement,” Commander of the IRGC Second Naval Zone Rear Admiral Ali Razmjou said.

He reiterated that the IRGC Navy is fully equipped with state-of-the-art defensive military hardware.

Last week, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic are fully prepared to protect the country.

“Our country’s armed forces, under the wise command of [Leader of the Islamic Revolution] Ayatollah [Seyyed Ali] Khamenei are fully prepared to defend the Islamic Republic of Iran’s territory,” Dehqan said.
