IRGC chief hails dispatch of oil tankers to Venezuela as display of might

Tasnim – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said Iran has exhibited its power by sending oil tankers to Venezuela.

In comments at a military gathering in Tehran on Wednesday, Major General Salami said the greatest exhibition of Iran’s power took place recently when the country “imposed its will” on the adversaries and its oil tankers sailed international waters from the Persian Gulf to Venezuela.

The Islamic Revolution is breaking the back of the enemies, the commander said, adding, “By God’s grace, today we are witnessing the early and rapid decline of our archenemies, particularly the US.”

He said the criminal nature of the US government has become so obvious that even the American people are setting fire to the US flag.

“All of the symbols with which the US was presenting itself and was displaying an untrue image to the world are falling, and the US is tearing apart the image it had created about itself,” the general added.
