Konarak was recently added to Iranian Navy

Reports of an Iranian Navy Ship shooting another Iranian Navy vessel started circulating social media Sunday evening,

The initial reports suggest the missile firing was a mistake, however unconfirmed reports that the mistake cost 19 to 20 lives thus far in the incident that occurred in the Gulf of Oman

According to the local sources, Iranian Moudge-class frigate “Jamaran” (pennant number:76) accidentally shot friendly vessel named “Konarak” (Hendijan-class general-purpose vessel) with a C-802 Noor missile during live firing exercise in the Jask area on 10th May.

Iranian Revolutionary Guards termed it human error due to incorrect manoeuvre during a training exercise. There is no official statement made by the Iranian Navy yet.

Image seen above is an Iranian Moudge Class frigate.

This wouldn’t be the first time Iran has mistakenly pulled the trigger too early, during escalations with the U.S. they unintentionally shot down a Ukrainian airplane killing 176 on board.

Iranian media states that at least 40 are missing with 23+ confirmed dead, there is no word from the Iranian STATE run media which is run by the Islamic Regime. 18 of the deceased are Revolutionary Guard officers.

Reports from Iran say the Commander of Konarak Navy vessel is among those killed.
Iran’s regular forces (Artesh) has not issued a statement yet.

@Khafee,

So the Iranian navy threatened the US navy thatat any ships getting close would be shot at---.

So to prove that point and show how lethal their weapons are---the Iranian navy shot one of its boats just to make sure that the amreekans understood that the Iranians are serious in what they are saying and also showing the potency of their weapons---.

So---be careful amreeka---and be careful everyone else.

Hi,

When things like that start to happen---like first you shoot down a passenger aircraft taking off from your airport after you had made threats---then you shoot down your own boat after you have made threats---then there is one thing that comes to mind---.

That is---that there is a superior power that does not want it to happen---or that you are so terrible in ability and capability that it would be better if you shut down your military program and start all over---.

Or just simply take a break---go on a hiatus---take time off---change your position---do nothing---.

May 11 (UPI) -- At least 19 Iranian servicemen were killed and 15 others were injured during naval exercises in the Sea of Oman, Iranian-state run media said, describing the incident as an "accident."

The undisclosed incident occurred Sunday, and rescue and relief operations were deployed soon after, the Iranian Navy said in a statement Monday, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.

According to the statement, the Konarak vessel, a Dutch-made 155-foot Hendijan-class support ship with missile capabilities, was involved in the accident some 790 miles southeast of the capital Tehran, the Iranian Students' News Agency reported.

"The circumstances of the incident are currently undergoing technical examinations," the news agency said.

The Navy had initially reported one death and 15 injured but the death toll was raised hours later.

At least two of the injured servicemen underwent surgery, two others were discharged from the hospital and 11 others were in stable condition, said Mohammad Mehran Amini Fard, head of the Iranshahr University of Medical Sciences.
