IRGC ready to sink US warships in Persian Gulf: Commander

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the IRGC naval forces are in such good level of military preparedness that they can send the US warships to the bottom of the Persian Gulf.

In a Thursday address to a gathering of IRGC Navy commanders in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad, Major General Jafari said the IRGC naval forces have pretty good conditions.

The IRGC Navy is ready to intercept any intruding vessel in the Persian Gulf, he added.

In separate comments yesterday, the top general unveiled plans for multiple war games in the current Iranian year (ends on March 20, 2017) to maintain the military preparedness of the IRGC forces and send enemies the message that the forces are ready to bury them in the Persian Gulf waters.

In December 2015, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that security of the Persian Gulf region comes within the purview of the regional countries alone, and dismissed the US claim of seeking security in the region.

“The Persian Gulf security relates to the countries of the region which have common interests, and not to the US. So, security of the Persian Gulf region should be provided by the countries of this region itself,” the Leader said.
