Iranian Navy Commander: US troops not to survive if their commanders make mistake
Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 5 /Trend, D.Khatinoglu/
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said in case American commanders take wrong decision (to strike on Iran), their troops in Persian Gulf would not survive, ISNA reported.
"If the U.S. government conducts any aggression in Persian Gulf, they should wait for Iran's destructive response," he added.
Admiral Fadavi called presence of the U.S. troops in Persian Gulf as "occupying" and said that Americans don't have right to strike Iran from their bases in the region and the occupied lands.
Recalling terrorist attack to U.S. base Dahran in Saudi Arabia, Fadavi said that base was hosting about 60 percent of American flights before 1996, but after "small tactical event" the number of the U.S. flights reached zero.
A truck bomb ripped through an apartment complex of Air Force pilots and other American military personnel near the eastern Saudi Arabian city of Dhahran on June 25, 1996, which left 19 killed and more than 300 injured among American troops.
