At least one soldier died and several others were injured during Iranian Navy exercises in the Persian Gulf.


An army spokesman reports this on Monday, according to a message from the state news agency Irna.

The ship “Konawar” was involved in an “accident” on Sunday. Further details will be released after an investigation.

Local journalists say there was a missile launch. According to social media reports, a missile was accidentally fired from the Iranian ship Jamaran at Konawar.

As a result, the boat would have sunk and several crew members died. The Iranian Navy does not confirm those reports.
