January 19, 2017

TEHRAN – Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base’s warning alerts forced the U.S. F-18 fighter jet to abandon attempts to free U.S. sailors captured by Iranian forces last January, the base’s lieutenant commander Alireza Sabahi-Fard announced on Wednesday. 

The IRGC Naval Force captured the U.S. Navy sailors inside Iran’s territorial waters on January 12, 2016 in the Persian Gulf.
