Iranian Admiral Threatens To ‘Drown’ U.S. Warships In Persian Gulf

Iran would drown U.S. warships if they present a threat to the Middle Eastern country, alerts a commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy.



“Wherever the Americans look in the Persian Gulf, they will see us,” stated Rear Adm. Ali Fadavi, commander of the IRGC Navy, on Monday night, regarding to Iran’s state-controlled media.

“They know that if they commit the slightest mistake, we will drown their vessels in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, or the Sea of Oman,” he included.

Rear Adm. Fadavi’s remarks came while he was talking on state television, says the state-controlled Press TV.

The Islamic Republic’s enemies are not informed of the country’s full military abilities, said the commander, showing the Iranian Navy’s claimed defense might.

Fadavi, dropping light on the American military position in the region, stated, “The US has attracted regional and non-regional allies in the waters forming an unnatural military array,” accounts the state-controlled Mehr News Agency (MNA).

“Passing through territorial waters is possible under certain regulations,” said Fadavi including, “Accordingly, they have not crossed Iranian waters for numerous years.”

He reiterated that U.S. appearance in the Persian Gulf “is an absolute evil.”

Fadavi supposedly claimed that the IRGC has underground facilities outfitted with surface-to-sea missiles and a number of ships.

“Americans are {aware that Iran would destroy their warships if they take a {wrong measure in the region,” expressed the IRGC Navy commander, rejecting the joint naval patrols in the Persian Gulf by way of “Britain, U.S. and France.”

“Upon Iran’s request, Persian speakers are present on almost all American warships in the Persian Gulf as most conversations were conducted in Farsi during recent detention of U.S. marines by the IRGC Navy,” included Fadavi.

Innocent passing in both water and air space of the Persian Gulf would not be given to American vessels and drones, also cautioned the Iranian rear admiral.

“American officials need to improve their understanding of Iran though they currently possess an accurate and true understanding of executive aspects of the region,” he said, later worrying, “Undoubtedly, America’s threats against the Islamic Revolution have not declined even by the smallest degree.”

In mid-March, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter informed lawmakers that Iran is displaying “reckless and destabilizing behavior,” including that the U.S. tries to counter the Islamic Republic’s hostility, counter its malign effect, and support our “ironclad commitments” to regional allies, specifically Israel.

Fadavi belittled Carter’s latest remarks about Iran.

“Iran’s great power has forced US to consider creation of deterrent capabilities,” stated the IRGC commander.

“They once wanted to be the sole beneficiary of regional interests, but later felt the need to share the interests with other partners in exchange for more abilities,” he included.

In July 2015, Iran hit a historic nuclear deal along with five world powers guided by the United States.

Secretary of State John Kerry, in April of this year, stated, “Iran deserves the benefits of the agreement they struck” on the nuclear deal, including that he is not shocked by the country’s recent attention grabbing behavior.
