The US Navy has instructed all its units and forces to use the misnomer "The Arab Gulf" rather than its original and real name, the Persian Gulf.


The United States Navy has ordered all troops under its command to use the fake name The Arab Gulf to refer to the body of water to the south of Iran, IRNA quoted the Israeli radio as reporting on its website.

The order is reportedly posted on the US Navy's website.

This comes as the body of water is referred to as "The Persian Gulf" in all historical and international documents.

Several international scientific conferences have been held in recent years to discuss the historical roots of the Persian Gulf. Researchers from the most reputable academic centers worldwide are almost unanimous in their agreement that the body of water has been referred to throughout history as the Persian Gulf.

Some regional countries and Western publications, however, continue to distort historical facts by omitting "Persian" from the full name, in an apparent orchestrated effort to eliminate the true ity of the Persian Gulf.

On April 29, Iran held the sixth edition of the Persian Gulf Conference in the southern Kish Island, on the eve of celebrations marking the national Persian Gulf Day.
