“The IRGC Navy is fully ready against foreign threats and 100 light and heavy vessels are prepared to defend the country’s water borders against the US and its regional allies every day,” Admiral Fadavi said on Wednesday.
He underscored Iran‘s naval superiority over the US and its regional allies in the Persian Gulf, and said, “Today, the one who feels endangered at the water borders is the Americans.”
In relevant remarks in mid-March, Admiral Fadavi warned that Washington is using every means to prevent the growth of Iran‘s deterrence power.
“Our enemies, headed by the US, are using all their power to control Iran‘s deterrence power,” Fadavi said, addressing a ceremony in the Southern province of Khuzestan.
He, meantime, underlined that the enemies are aware of Iran‘s defense power, and said, “They are sure that they cannot harm our country by launching military war.”
Also last month, Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran‘s Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri warned the US to be more careful about the movements of its warships in the Persian Gulf.
“The US should have more control and supervision on its fleet’s behavior in the Persian Gulf,” General Jazzayeri said.
