The locally made suicide drone was designed to hit potential enemies on land, air and sea by dropping explosives, Iran’s Brig Gen Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said. The military drill is being participated by 13,000 Iranian military men and is the first drill conducted offshore attended by the Iranian navy. The drill also involves test fires of the country’s ballistic missiles and cyber warfare technology.

“Mohammed The Delegate of G-d” military war game is said to be an unspoken message addressed to the Houthis in Yemen. The group had been capturing towns in Yemen. Through the drill, Iran wanted to assure the group that the country is committed in helping it establish strategic positions in the region, Arutz Sheva reported.

On Dec 28, an spy plane identified to be of the United States had scrambled away from the military drill zone after stern warning from Iran’s Airborne Division of Iran’s Navy. There were also sightings prompting warnings against international warships patrolling the zone, Navy Chief Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari said as reported by the Tehran Times.

Sayyari said that these military vessels from other countries flew the area even if it was marked for lunching missiles and torpedoes for the drills and prior warnings days before the drill started. The zone had been planted with mines to prevent “mock enemy” from entering Iran’s coastal areas. He warned that military planes and ships who exhibit hostility by refusing to leave the zone after repeated warnings should deal with “any consequences” that may arise with the situation.

Iran had been improving its navy, missile systems, drones and cyber warfare technology in past years amidst its supreme leader openly calling for the Israel to be annihilated. It had also warned of closing the Strait of Hormuz any moment that forces from Western countries hit its nuclear facilities.
