Following the attack by six armed men and the arrest of two others in the Strait of Hormuz, Bahrain organized a meeting last week on the security of the Arabian Sea. The participating countries have not yet been formally represented at this conference. But according to The Guardian, the United States and “other European countries” are represented.
However, the meeting did not go unnoticed by Iran, which did not hesitate to criticize the Bahrain government, which also housed the US Navy’s Fifth Air Force headquarters.
“The government of Bahrain cannot moderate the demands and plans of natural enemies in the region,” said Abbas Moussavi, a spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, in a statement sent via Telegram.
“Some countries in the region cannot be safe from others. People in the region are committed to strengthening foreign aid through care and attention,” Mousavi said, who also took the opportunity to condemn the “anti-Iranian” actions that Manama had taken.
After withdrawing its main points since May in Hormuz District, MARAD reported that in more than two cases, “GPS interference” was reported.
US CENTCOM has confirmed that there is a threat to the GPS signal and is trying to change it. “Due to increasing regional tensions, misunderstandings or identifications that could lead to strong actions against U.S.-controlled vessels, it is closely associated with the Coalition operating in the Arabian Gulf, Hormuz and the Gulf of Oman.”
According to the US embassy, the purpose of the Revolutionary Operations Command was to interrupt, obscure, GPS signals so that ships could transmit and enter Iranian waters.
