Abadan, Khuzestan Prov, May 22, IRNA-Khorramshahr's naval forces began a three-day wargame in the northwestern waters of the Persian Gulf on Sunday.
The military exercise, code-named 851, will be held in three different phases by frogmen and marine units of Khorramshahr's naval base.
An official from the base said that the exercise is taking place to mark the 24th anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr from Iraqi forces in 1982.
