The Iranian satellite Noor 2, which was put into orbit earlier this year, sent an image of the US Fifth Fleet Command Center in Bahrain as part of the first batch of high-resolution images, FoxNews reported.
Iran's domestic news agencies reported yesterday that the Noor 2 satellite, launched by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in March, also captured images from the southern provinces of Fars and Bushehr.
Minister of Communications and Information Technology Issa Zarepour wrote on his personal Instagram page:
Who would have thought that one day an Iranian satellite orbiting 311 miles would be able to capture color from all over the earth and send the images to ground stations made by young Iranians. This is the first time a native satellite has sent high-resolution images in true color.
In a report, Fox News quoted U.S. officials as saying that the U.S. Navy said the Fifth Fleet's area of operation "covers about 2.5 million square miles of water, including the Arabian Sea." "North of the Indian Ocean), the Gulf of Oman, the Red Sea and parts of the Indian Ocean."
The US Navy also said:
This range includes 20 countries and includes three bottlenecks that are vital to the free flow of world trade.
