4 military expert teams investigating Konarak vessel incident: Iran’s Army commander

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Army commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi announced that four teams of military experts are investigating into the incident in a recent naval training exercise that killed 19 servicemen on board “Konarak” support vessel in the country’s southeastern waters.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the funeral of the martyrs at an airbase in Tehran, Major General Mousavi said four teams of experts have been dispatched to the scene of the fatal accident to investigate the case.

The four teams, representing the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, the Defense Ministry, the Army and the Navy, have launched a probe into the incident, he added.

Looking into such accidents usually requires a very complicated process, because a careful and detailed examination should be conducted to ascertain whether a problem relates to the technical issues or the human error, the Army chief explained.

“The measures that are being taken at present are aimed at discovering the cause of the incident,” Major General Mousavi concluded.

Nineteen Navy servicemen were martyred and 15 others injured in the accident on Sunday evening, May 10, when a number of vessels were carrying a naval training exercise off the coasts of Jask and Chabahar in the Sea of Oman.
