DUBAI – Iran has warned off foreign surveillance planes that have tried to approach its forces during naval drills in the Strait of Hormuz, an Iranian military spokesman said on Tuesday.

The drills, which began on Friday, are aimed at showcasing Iran’s military capability in the shipping route through which 40 percent of the world’s sea-borne oil exports pass.
