The Indian Navy named the deployment “Operation Sankalp (resolution)”, claiming that it only serves to re-assure Indian flagged vessels travelling through the area following the recent maritime incidents there.

New Delhi (Sputnik): The Indian Navy has deployed warships and aircraft to the Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf to undertake maritime security operations amid rising tensions between the US and Iran.

The announcement came from the Indian Navy on a day when Iranian paramilitary forces claimed that a US spy drone had been shot down after entering Iran’s airspace.

“Ships Chennai and Sunayna have been deployed in the Gulf of Oman and Persian Gulf to undertake Maritime Security operations. In addition, aerial surveillance by IN (Indian) aircraft is also being undertaken in the area,” the Indian Navy said on Thursday.
