Iranian warships dock at Syria’s Tartus port

Share:

Iranian Press TV reported that the two Iranian warships , the destroyer Shahid Qandi and supply vessel Kharg, had docked at the Syrian city of Tartus after crossing the Suez Canal

According to press TV the ships plan to provide maritime training to Syria’s naval forces under an agreement signed between Tehran and Damascus a year ago.

Admiral Habibollah Sayari said in remarks quoted by the official IRNA news agency that the naval deployment to the Mediterranean would show ‘the might’ of the Islamic republic to regional countries, and also convey Teheran’s ‘message of peace and friendship.’

This development comes amid heightened tensions between Iran and Israel, fueled by a longstanding dispute over Teheran’s nuclear program and rising speculation that Israel might launch preemptive strikes against Iranian facilities.

Iranian naval forces are composed of small units, including speedboats equipped with missiles, which operate in the Gulf and are under the command of the elite Revolutionary Guards.

The navy, using small frigates, destroyers, and three Russian-made Kilo class submarines, oversees high seas missions in the Gulf of Oman and Gulf of Aden.

    Training the Syrians to kill more 14 yr. old Lebanese boys fishing for food and a meagre income in the ever more polluted red mediterranean, no doubt.
    The “might of the Islamic republic” to force their convoluted “message of peace and friendship” on the people who don’t want it from them, and can no longer believe the lies.
    The Elite Killer Guards no doubt have enough ‘power’ in their little boats to eliminate several hundred or more … but they can’t put the ‘fear of god’ into those who wish for freedom and a chance to live lives they choose. The ‘Supreme’ and ‘Assadic’ despotism is failing to impress those who seek. These are the last shudders of those failures, and all the words of various ‘bollas’ are not going to stop their downward spiral.
    Think of the peace and friendship there could be without them.

    1. unfortunately at this point they’re only up to their elbows in blood, they wont give up until they are drowned in the blood of their victims…

  4. The following bullshit……”This development comes amid heightened tensions between Iran and Israel,…..Israel might launch preemptive strikes against Iranian facilities.” I dont think so , here is the real thing……
    In 1977, Israel arranged a $1 billion arms-for-oil deal around Operation Flower, a joint Israeli-Iranian project to build a nuclear-capable surface-to-surface missile. And like their American counterparts, certain Israelis also seem to have been part of the corrupt nexus through which top Iranian political and military leaders were enriched through arms sale commissions.

    “When the Israelis decide to change their policy,” one top State Department official told a reporter in the mid- 1 970s, “the first place the Israeli jet touches down is Tehran. Moshe Dayan is in and out of there quite frequently.

    “Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon told the Washington Post in May 1982, justifying Israeli arms sales to Tehran, “Iraq is Israel’s enemy and we hope that diplomatic relations between us and Iran will be renewed as in the past.” Four months later he told a Paris press conference, “Israel has a vital interest in the continuing of the war in the Persian Gulf, and in Iran’s victory.” Such views were not Sharon’s alone; Prime Ministers Itzhak Shamir (Likud) and Shimon Peres (Labor) shared them too.

    Israel destroyed Saddams Nuke plant long before but did they ever make any attempt to destroy Irans Nuke plant other than by mouth??  Irans stooge Assad is in trouble and when Assad fall the Iranian influence from that region will be vaporized over night. So Iran will try to save the Assad regime at any cost.
