|Iran to unveil new missile-launching warship||
TEHRAN – The commander of the Iranian Navy has announced that a new domestically manufactured warship, named the Sina 7, will be unveiled on Wednesday.
“The main framework of the Sina 7 missile-launching warship will be unveiled on Wednesday,” Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said during a press conference on Monday.
The newly launched Sahand destroyer, which is equipped with advanced systems, and an advanced domestically designed simulator for submarines of the Ghadir class will also be unveiled on Wednesday, he added.
During a ceremony in the southern port city of Bandar Abbas on September 18, the hull of the Sahand destroyer was launched by order of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution.
Sayyari also said that two submarines of the Ghadir class and two hovercrafts, which have been repaired by Iranian experts, will be delivered to the Navy on Wednesday.
Iran will not allow U.S. aircraft carriers to come near borders
Commenting on the Pentagon’s decision to send the aircraft carrier USS John Stennis to the Persian Gulf region four months ahead of schedule, the Iranian admiral said that the aircraft carrier will come back sooner than planned because another U.S. aircraft carrier in the region has encountered a technical problem.
He also said, “The U.S. aircraft carriers regularly enter the Persian Gulf waters due to their agreements with certain regional countries, but we will not allow them to come near our borders.”
