(Worthy News) - Iran is set to deploy a fleet of warships to the western Atlantic Ocean in the coming months, a naval commander said Friday, in an apparent bid to counter the presence of a US aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf.

Rear-Admiral Touraj Hassani told the state-run IRNA news site the flotilla of warships would depart for the Atlantic in March, and the mission would take several months.

“The Atlantic Ocean is a long route, and it is likely that this Iranian mission would take five months to complete,” he said. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
