Top commander says all region under IRGC monitoring

Tehran, IRNA – Navy commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps on Monday said that the IRGC’s Naval Force keeps monitoring the region all the time, because Iran has the longest coastline along the Persian Gulf.

Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, who heads the IRGC Naval Force, made the remark on Monday at a presser on International Day of Seafarer which is marked on June 25 each year.

He said that the IRGC Naval Force keeps carrying out its monitoring mission in the Persian Gulf, also because that Iran has key islands in that region.

Tangsiri referred to the IRGC’s confiscation of two Greek ships on May 30 in response to Athens’ move to impound an Iranian-flagged vessel by the United States’ order.

He said that the two Greek ships were seized in a short span of time despite the fact that they were in two different locations.

The IRGC commander stressed that the Iranian nation will never bow to bullying.

Following the seizure of the two Greek ships, Athens released the Iranian vessel earlier in June, with a supreme court in central Greece ordering the return of an oil cargo on board the ship and confiscated by the US to be returned to Iran.
