Btw, you dont think US has subs in the region? Bet there are a whole fleet watching the area.
(the reference given for this dates to 2009)
Iran's submarine force currently consists of three Russian Kilo-class diesel-electric submarines (Tareq 901, Noor 902, Yunes 903), one 500-ton Nahang and four 120-ton Yono-class (also referred to as Qadir or Ghadir-class) midget submarines.

Also how do they plan for an ambush when they just broadcast their intent to everyone doesn't make a lot of sense . Kinda like a bank robber calling the bank to let them know he is on the way to the bank have the safe open
Our Russian "friends" have sold Shkval torpedoes to the Iranians—as well as submarines from which to launch them. The Russians believed Shkval could not be reversed engineered.
They were wrong. Today, Iran manufactures its own supercavitating torpedo, claiming it can reach speeds in excess of Shkval's.
.. And, in both Moscow and Tehran there was recognition, that if a heavy torpedo was used with such success, their supercavitating torpedoes will be unstoppable against the US Navy.
