At an impressive ceremony in the southern Iranian port city of Bandar Abbas in Hormozgan province on Monday, two new warships from the Shahid Soleimani-class were delivered to the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

The two catamarans, Shahid Sayyad Shirazi and Shahid Hassan Bagheri are named after legendary Iranian military commanders known for their military heroics during the imposed war in the 1980s.

The ceremony was attended by Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Bagheri, IRGC Navy commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, and other top military officials.

In his speech, General Bagheri proudly highlighted the progress in the Islamic Republic’s naval capabilities, noting the astonishing efficiency in research-to-production timelines.

He noted that Iran’s progress is nearly unmatched compared to other developing nations while renewing calls for the immediate withdrawal of US-led foreign forces from the region.

General Bagheri also emphasized the armed forces’ readiness to take even the smallest threat to the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity seriously, ensuring constant preparedness.

Discussing the situation in the West Asia region, he pointed to the irreparable military defeat of the Zionist regime in the Gaza Strip, referring to the desperation of the occupying regime to target defenseless Palestinian civilians after failing to take on the resistance.

Elaborating on the regional dynamics, General Bagheri distinguished between two groups: the righteous side, which includes Palestine, Yemen, Lebanese Hezbollah and resistance groups in Iraq and Syria.
