More Jan. 8 Russian aircraft carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" dropped anchor in the roads port of Tartus in Syria, arrived together with BOD (large anti-submarine ship) "Admiral Chabanenko", also with the patrol ship "Yaroslav the Wise." Trying to resist this movement, in the district of Tartus France has deployed a destroyer «Forbin».
Portal «Debka», citing military sources, reported that over the past two days in the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf off the coast of Iran came fast build-up of naval forces of the West. It is alleged that all this is done only because of the danger of Tehran to close the Strait of Hormuz.
Britain also sent to the Gulf of Oman own destroyer «Daring» (type 45) which armed with the new missile defense system. Immediately the British to the same is soon to come and French aircraft carrier "Charles de Gaulle".
With an emphasis on the information obtained from these sources, it is clear that the strategic UAV RQ-type 2 Global Hawk started to conduct reconnaissance of the Iranian coast, with the aircraft carrier USS «Stennis». Himself aircraft carrier together with its own strike group is directed to the entrance to the Strait of Hormuz Strait is the one that is totally not long ago Tehran was threatening to block the movement of Arab oil tankers.
We also recall that on December 4 over the territory of Iran drone was shot down by USAF RQ-170 which was either shot down or fell down without the help of others for technical reasons. UAV launched from an aircraft carrier for the exploration of air and surface surveillance.
January 9th South American military sources said: "The task of« Global Hawk », is the monitoring of maritime traffic in the Strait of Hormuz and the Iranian coastline." South American Navy was ordered to track the movement in this area only after Admiral Habibollah Sayar (Commander of the Iranian Navy) said on Sunday that the said strait is here for many years under the absolute control of the naval forces of Iran.
On Sunday, in an interview with «CBS», U.S. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey (the official dealer of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) stressed that "if Iran decides to block strait, we will correct it promptly. " And Leon Pennetta (Minister of Defense) has warned Iran about the likely rapid, decisive, rapid and very severe U.S. response to any test of this country to close the Strait of Hormuz.
At the same time, sources «Debka» indicate that the relentless expansion of military tension in the last days of around Syria and Iran stems not only from a frisky promotion Iran in the production of nuclear weapons, and the excitement of Israel and the West over the fact that Damascus and Tehran can begin together to produce its own military plans in the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf.
It is understood that after the carrier "Admiral Kuznetsov" stood up to the raid at the port of Tartus, soon rose to its board Daoud Rajah (Fleet commander of Syria.) By the way, he was met with a noble guard of Russian marines who lined up against fighter-bombers Su-25 and Su-33. All this action was taken as a demonstration of the Kremlin's willingness to speak in support of Bashar al-Assad against at least some military intervention of the West, and, of course, as a gesture of cooperation with Iran and Syria in the framework of its operational plans.
