"Iran’s 34th fleet faces US flotilla opposite Yemen"
"Iran’s Navy commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari announced Thursday, Oct. 13, that the Iranian 34th Fleet had deployed warships to the Bab al-Mandeb strait opposite the shores of Yemen. He made no mention of the US Tomahawk attack two days ago that destroyed three Iranian radar stations set up on Yemen’s Red Sea shore in rebel Houthi territory, in retaliation for Iranian missile attacks on American warships"
"Iran continues its sea confrontation with the US opposite Yemen by posting its 34th fleet opposite the US Navy flotilla, including its largest warship, the Bushehr."
