Close to U.S.-led International Mines Countermeasure Exercise
IRGC Naval Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Monday that Iran has test-fired four missiles designed to hit warships during a drill near the Strait of Hormuz. Adm. Fadavi added that the missiles were fired simultaneously at a warship-sized target and sank it within 50 seconds.
"We have missile systems that cover all the Persian Gulf coasts and the American bases (in the region)," Admiral Fadavi said. (Fars News Agency)
The IRGC missile drill took place simultaneously and close to U.S.-led International Mines Countermeasure Exercise (IMCMEX) in the Persian Gulf that began on Sunday 16 September and runs through 27 September.
On 18 September, Iran had held a minelaying exercise, but that drill was conducted at the Caspian Sea across the country from the Persian Gulf.
