Iranian ‘Fleet’ to Patrol Mediterranean

January 18, 2013  •  From theTrumpet.com
Iran’s 24th naval fleet is taking action in controlling the Mediterranean.
 

Iran’s 24th Fleet will patrol the Mediterranean, Red Sea and Suez Canal, Iranian Navy Commander Rear Adm. Habibollah Sayyari announced January 16, according to Iranian state-owned Press tv. The fleet’s three-month voyage will see it traveling as far as Southeast Asia.

The term “fleet” is a bit of an exaggeration. The Jerusalem Post reports that the 24th Fleet is made up of one submarine and one warship.
