    Iranian maneuvers are called “Sustainable Security and Sea Power 96”

    The question may be naive, but why "96"?

      Iran is now 1396 year.
      By the way, this is one of the stumbling blocks between the Sunnis and Shiites. The Sunnis have 1438 year.

      their main enemy is the us and the west with saud and israel
