Iran launches naval drills amid rising USA tensions

01 March 2017, 12:39 | Clarence Schmidt

Iran's navy has test-fired the latest versions of the Nasr and Dehlaviyeh missiles during military exercises in the Gulf, local media reported on Monday. He put Iran "on notice" after its test-firing of a ballistic missile at the end of January.

The U.S. President has issued a stern warning to Tehran after it tested a ballistic missile late last month.

According to state media, ships, submarines and helicopters will participate in the naval drills across a 2 million sq km area along with marines, who will show off their skills in Iran's southeastern coast.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) were recently involved in the provocation of vessels in the area.

The tests were held as part of the Iranian Navy's large-scale drills code-named Velayat 95.

Almost a third of the world's oil trade by sea passes through the Strait of Hormuz, which has been the scene of previous confrontations between the United States and Iran.

Grading Magic Johnson's trade of Lou Williams to the Rockets
That'll run the Rockets a nice $7 million, which is looking like severe underpayment with the year Williams is putting together. The fact that the Rockets acquired him with the lackluster trade pieces that they did certainly seems to back that up.

This news comes just as tensions are rising between the Trump administration and Iran.

The US announced a ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US, although this was a campaign promise of Trump's and unlikely caused by the missile test. We don't respond well to sanctions, but we respond very well to mutual respect. However, numerous reports have suggested that Tehran has violated the nuclear deal on several occasions since the summer of 2015.

Iran was warned that it was playing with fire and the Trump administration declared that no options had been ruled out, implying that military action is a possibility.

"Everyone could see today what power we have on the ground", Gen. Pakpour said.

He claimed they violated the United Nations resolution but Iran rejected the claims.
