Iranian Submarines’ Ambush for US Aircraft Carriers in Persian Gulf


The Fars News Agency reports: “A senior Iranian military commander underlined that the Iranian Navy’s subsurface vessels enjoy a high capability to confront enemies’ threats, and stated that Iran’s submarines are able to ambush and hit enemy vessels specially U.S. Aircraft carriers from the seabed throughout the Persian Gulf.

Speaking to FNA, Lieutenant Commander of the Iranian Army’s Self-Sufficiency Jihad Rear Admiral Farhad Amiri said that Iran has the best electronic diesel submarines of the world, adding that enemies, the US in particular, are most focused on Iran’s astonishing subsurface capabilities.

Amiri underlined that significance of submarines are not just indebted to their arms and equipment, ‘rather the tactical issues are very important’, given the geographical specifications of the waters surrounding the county.

‘For example,’ he stated, ‘if an ordinary submarines can sit in the Persian Gulf’s bed it would be the worst threat to the enemy.’

‘That is one of the US concerns since Iranian submarines are noiseless and can easily evade detection as they are equipped with the sonar-evading technology’ and can fire missiles and torpedoes simultaneously,’ he added…” (Iran backed by Russia and China will begin World War III – Ezekiel 38 & 39 is Russia.

Official: Gulf Arabs have plans against Hormuz closure


Reuters reports: “Coastguards and naval forces of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) group of Arab countries have contingency plans for a possible attempt by Iran to shut the Strait of Hormuz, a Kuwaiti maritime official said…

Five of the six GCC members – Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Qatar and Kuwait – rely on the world’s most important energy shipping lane being open to export most of their oil or gas.

Tehran has threatened to close the narrow shipping lane between Oman, the only GCC member which does not depend on Hormuz, and Iran if Western sanctions aimed at starving Iran’s disputed nuclear program of funds stop it from selling oil.

The GCC members, which also rely on the four-mile-wide (6.4 kilometer) channel being open to import food for their growing populations, has now drawn up a contingency plan in case Iran acts on its threats.

‘Exporting oil or importing goods and cargo through Hormuz is a main concern for the GCC,’ Commander Mubarak Ali Al-Sabah chief of maritime operations at Kuwait’s Coast Guard told Reuters in an interview.

‘The GCC has a plan as a body – not just Kuwait separately or Bahrain or Saudi Arabia – we have a plan we just hope that everything stays safe,’ Al-Sabah said, without giving details of the plans…” (Sheba and Dedan of Ezekiel 38:13 are the Gulf Nations who battle Persia – Ezekiel 38:5 for the spoils of war.
