IRGC Commander Visiting the Three Islands

IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari today visited the three islands of Abu Musa, Greater Tunb and Lesser Tunb and said the islands were Iran’s “strategic and sensitive territory.” The UAE also claims the ownership of the Persian Gulf islands and last month, backed by the GCC, strongly objected to President Ahmadinejad’s visit to Abu Musa.

During the visit, Jafari was accompanied by his naval commander IRGC Brig. Gen. Ali Fadavi. IRGC official website reported that its commanding general was “satisfied” with the condition of Iranian combat units stationed on Abu Musa.

A couple of years ago it was found that soldiers on the largest of the islands had arranged large white stones to read "PERSIAN GULF." This was done for the benefit of USN aerial photo recon, and USN's stated preference for the term "Arabian Gulf."

Persian Gulf will absolutely, definitely and ultimately stay 'Persian' and will always be remembered for generation for thousand years to come.
