He underlined that the Iranian fleet of warships have provided security to 10,000 ships and escorted nearly 5,000 oil tankers.

Rear Admiral Sayyari noted that the home-made Destroyer, Dena, and Submarines Fateh and Tareq will join the Navy soon.

Iran has deployed its most advanced destroyer Sahand to the Gulf of Aden in a mission aimed at providing security for Iranian vessels in the high seas.

Rear Admiral Sayyari said that the warship is being accompanied by a logistical vessel and the Kharg helicopter carrier on the voyage.

The flotilla was the 63rd Iranian naval group to be dispatched on overseas operation, he added, saying the group will be escorting Iranian ships in the Sea of Oman and the Persian Gulf.
