Iran ‘has covert presence in Red Sea,’ says top defense researcher

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) Navy maintains a covert presence in the Red Sea through an array of ships, including some that gather intelligence and act as forward bases, a top defense researcher has said.

Lt. Col. (ret.) Michael Segall, a senior analyst at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, told JNS that after an alleged Israeli attack on the Saviz ship – described by international media as an IRGC ship acting as a forward and expeditionary base ship – the Iranians replaced it with a new ship, the Shahid Roudaki– a conversion of merchant ship into military floating base, which is also operated by the IRGC, and is located off the Eritrean coastline.

Looks like Iran has the Red Sea firmly under their control. Why don't Israel control the Mediterranean Sea.
