Israel’s Defense Minister Benny Gantz unveiled recent satellite images showing four Iranian military ships in the Red Sea while at the Annual Economist Government Roundtable in Greece. “Iran is expanding its aggressive operations in the region in general and in the naval arena in particular,” Gantz said, adding that it’s been “unusually” patrolling the Red Sea with its military ships. Gantz informed the crowd that Iran has been expanding its activities in the maritime arena.

“Today, we can confirm that Iran is methodically basing itself in the Red Sea, with warships patrolling the southern region,” he said. The defense minister shared satellite images of four Iranian military ships in the Red Sea, the “Hengam” landing ship, two different “Bandar Abbas” auxiliary ships and the “Mowj” frigate.
