Port Abbas.. The authentic Arab city named after a Safavid leader


Abbas port is one of the historical and important places controlled by the occupation within the occupied Arab state of Ahvaz, and because of its distinguished location located near the Strait of the Arabian Gulf, hence its historical and commercial importance coveted by the Persian occupier since entering the Arab Ahvaz, as its location, which is protection from any danger to the island of Hormuz, is reason enough to be one of the most important Arab areas occupied by the Persian occupation.

In addition to its proximity to the island of Hormuz, which is located about 15 km away, also from the coast of Oman with much less than 100 km, in addition to the very small distance that Abbas port is from the capital of the Persian occupation Tehran.

Since the Eighties of the last century, the port of Abbas was located next to the mission islands under the leadership of the rulers of Oman.

The Portuguese named the port of Abbas after
Jambron, which is known today as Bandar Abbas at the beginning of the fifteenth century AD.

The name came from Gamba, which means shrimp, or shrimp, which is found in abundance in the waters of Port Abbas and the rest of the waters of the Arabian Gulf.

And prawns are a shrimp-like aquatic animal, belonging to crustaceans.

The Persian forces attacked the port of Abbas with the help of the English forces at the beginning of the thirteenth century AD, after this attack led to the seizure of the port of jimbron and the nearby islands from the hands of the Portuguese and the name was transferred from jimbron to Bandar Abbas, after the Safavid Shah Abbas.

After the collapse of the Safavid state, sovereignty returned to the Arabs, where Bandar Abbas and its parties became subject to the Sultan of Oman until 1856 .

The Karon website, which specializes in Ahwazi historical materials, published, citing some historical sources, that Sultan Said Bin Sultan Al-Busaidi, Sultan of Muscat and Zanzibar, in 1852 about the history of Bandar Abbas and its outskirts:

In the name of God

A statement clarifying the fact that Bandar Abbas and its parties are in our hands
