Iranian naval forces have so far warned off 30 transregional spy drones from
entering the Velayat 91 military maneuver zone, a senior Iranian commander
said.

On the fifth day of the military maneuvers on Tuesday, the spokesman for the
Velayat 91 naval drills Rear Admiral Amir Rastegari noted that Iranian
forces have so far stopped 30 intrusion attempts by foreign spy drones and
reconnaissance aircraft into the maneuver zone.

“Different types of reconnaissance and spy aircraft that were attempting to
enter the maneuver zone to spy and gather information, faced warnings from
the Navy surface units and Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base,” the commander
added.

Rastegari stated that Iranian forces have also issued warnings on several
occasions to transregional vessels that were attempting to get close to the
exercise zone.

Iran’s Navy launched the six-day naval maneuvers codenamed Velayat 91 on
December 28, 2012, in order to display the country’s capabilities in
defending its maritime borders.

The specialized maritime maneuver covers an area from east of the Strait of
Hormuz in the Sea of Oman to north of the Indian Ocean as far as the 18th
parallel north.

Over the past few years, Iran has held several military drills to enhance
the defensive capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military
tactics and equipment.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, especially its
neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries,
stating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
