Two Iranian military ships – the destroyer Sahand and the intelligence-gathering and replenishment vessel Makran – are now sailing through the Atlantic en route to Venezuela.
According to Admiral Habibollah Sayyari, the vessels, which departed from the port of Bandar Abbas more than a month ago, are taking the longest and the most challenging trip in the history of the Iranian Navy.
The Navy is improving its seafaring capacity and proving its long-term durability in unfavorable seas and the Atlantic’s unfavorable weather conditions”, Sayyari said, adding that the warships would not call on any country’s port during the mission.
According to various US media outlets, citing anonymous American officials, the ships are believed to be en route to Venezuela. However, Tehran has not yet commented on the matter.
It is not clear what kind of cargo the vessels are carrying or what their goal is. Venezuela will host the first Iranian base on its soil.
Imagine 2500 medium range missiles and drones that can hit US soil. Next stop is Cuba as part of Vaccine missile trade. Sepah’s drones can cover entire US territory.
