Iran to conduct military manoeuvres in the Gulf


Aim of the manoeuvre – to be named Ettehad 86 – Unity (13)86 (current Persian year) – would be testing the latest Iranian warfare and military tactics, Fars news agency quoted Admiral Habib Sayari as saying.

Although Iranian top officials have ruled out a probable military strike by the US against the country’s atomic sites due to Iran’s rejection to suspend its uranium enrichment plan, the armed forces are prepared for the worst.

The commander of the paramilitary Revolutionary Guards, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said at the Friday prayer ceremony in Tehran the Iranian forces were ready to counter any military aggression “in any way necessary.”
