Iran: Israel scared by Iranian naval presence

The Iranian naval presence in international waters has alarmed and frightened Israel, Press TV reported Iranian Naval Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari as saying on Wednesday.
The naval commander said that Iran, as a "powerful nation," has every right to "be present in the high seas." The Naval officer mentioned Iran's successful passing through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean Sea earlier 2011, a move which prompted criticism from the Israeli government at the time.
