IRGC Navy Commander: Iran at helm of events in Persian Gulf
Despite prevailing conditions in the Persian Gulf and maximum pressure imposed on Iran, the country is at helm of entire events in the Gulf today, Commander of IRGC Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said, IRNA reported.
Admiral Ali Fadavi, speaking at the ceremony on the occasion of missile thrower small warships' joining to the IRGC naval fleet, said that "under current conditions if the U.S. would be intending to shoot, their economic field and military forces would suffer dearly".
"The conditions and requirements for initiating a war against Iran would never be provided for the Americans, therefore, the losses of beginning a war for them would be greater than its benefits," he added.
Fadavi added that "The Revolutionary Guard Pasdars of the Islamic Revolution always consider themselves indebted to the revolution, which is why for safeguarding the revolution they dedicate their lives without hesitation".
Iranian officials have repeatedly warned the trans-regional states, specially the US, to pull their troops and warships out of the Persian Gulf.
In January, a senior Iranian military commander underlined that the Iranian Navy's subsurface vessels enjoy a high capability to confront enemies' threats, and stated that Iran's submarines are able to ambush and hit enemy vessels specially US Aircraft carriers from the seabed throughout the Persian Gulf.
