EghtesadOnline: Deputy commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy said here on Tuesday that the IRGC is closely monitoring all foreign vessels in the Persian Gulf.
Following the reports of some foreign media on IRGC dispatching five military vessels to monitor a US warship in the Strait of Hormuz, Ali-Reza Tangsiri said monitoring the foreign vessels is not a new issue.
According to IRNA, Alireza Tangsiri underscored that IRGC Navy is monitoring around-the-clock all foreign vessels in the Persian Gulf.
'According to our missions, the IRGC Navy forces are closely and thoughtfully monitoring the movement of any vessel from foreign countries, particularly the extra-regional states such as the hostile US vessels' he added.
Tangsiri concluded that the foreign vessels are also entirely aware of the IRGC Navy forces' monitoring in the Persian Gulf.
