Iran: Velayat 91 Naval Drills To Begin Dec. 28

Iran will hold Velayat 91 naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz, Gulf of Oman and the northern Indian Ocean on Dec. 28-Jan. 2, an Iranian naval commander said Dec. 25, Reuters reported. The drills are meant to showcase Iran's military capabilities. The commander said the drill would test combat ships, patrol and reconnaissance methods, submarines and the navy's missile systems. One of Iran's most important deterrents to an attack on its territory is its threat to close the Strait of Hormuz, a vital choke point in the shipping of crude oil from the Persian Gulf into the open sea.
