Ghadir submarine successfully launches cruise missile

Iran’s new Sahand destroyer

The maneuvers were set to involve hundreds of equipment, including surface ships, submarines, hovercraft, planes and helicopters, but most notably, the brand new Fateh cruise missile submarine and Moudge-class destroyer Sahand.

Washington aims to force Tehran to end its nuclear program and its support of militant groups in Syria and Iraq.

The European Union, as well as China and Russian Federation, have moved to defy Trump's sanctions, however, vowing to continue doing business with Iran.

Iran often claims it has made breakthroughs in its military capabilities.

Last December, UAE minister of state for foreign affairs Dr Anwar Gargash said that dealing with Iran's ballistic missile programme had "taken on an added urgency because of the Houthis [in Yemen are] using Iranian missiles to target Saudi Arabia - and that is not lost on anybody".

Previous year retired Marine Gen. Jim Jones, former national security adviser during the Obama administration, said if Iran ever followed through on its threats to block worldwide shipping through the Strait of Hormuz, he would like to see its navy "disappear".

"They were trying to sabotage some parts, to cause the missiles to explode in the air", Amirali Hajizadeh, head of the Revolutionary Guards' aerospace division, was quoted as saying by Tasnim. The maneuvers came as U.S. aircraft carriers returned to the region after a long absence.

He went on to accuse Iran's "enemies" of sabotage without naming any specific country or entity.

While the United Nations nuclear watchdog has said that Tehran has complied with the deal, the U.S. and others have said that without articles concerning the missile programme and other regional actions the deal falls short.

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled out of an global agreement on Iran's nuclear programme last May and reimposed sanctions on Tehran.

Iran displayed a new cruise surface-to-surface missile with a range of 1,300 km (800 miles) earlier this month during celebrations marking the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

Iran's military personnel have said the exercise is for defensive purposes only. Iran also marked the occasion by testing the new Hoveizeh cruise missile and a precision warhead-fitted Khorramshahr 2 ballistic missile.
