Iran's IRGC is the main provider of security in the Persian Gulf, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said, Fars reported.

Jafari noted that IRGC' s radius of influence spreads way beyond the Persian Gulf.

The commander made the remarks during the preparation of missile tests in the Strait of Hormuz today.

Jafari also emphasized the value and importance of the Persian Gulf geopolitics.

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy recently conducted military drills in southern Iran as part of their tactical training for modern warfare.

The exercises, overseen by the commander of the IRGC Navy, Rear Admiral Reza Torabi, were held in the waters of the Persian Gulf near the port city of Bandar Abbas.

The exercises were conducted to boost the combat readiness of IRGC forces, familiarize them with the latest military achievements, increase their response time, ensure well-timed responses to natural and manmade disasters, and provide an opportunity for IRGC forces to become acquainted with new weapons.
