Iran has dispatched warships, including destroyer to Gulf of Aden, Iran's Tasnim News Agency reported on Thursday as war rages in Yemen’s al-Hudaydah.
The naval fleet, comprising the Kharg Helicopter Carrier and Sabalan Destroyer, is on its way to the Indian Ocean.
It will later arrive in the Gulf of Aden and Bab el-Mandeb Strait.
This is Kharg’s first mission in years after being overhauled by the Navy’s experts and technicians.
Kharg is a helicopter carrier and supply and replenishment ship of the Iranian Navy, named after the country’s Kharg Island in the Persian Gulf.
