IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri said that the force has successfully carried out six operations against the aggressor US forces, breaking the nobility of US’ flimsy power in the Persian Gulf.
Tangisir said the remarks in the commemoration ceremony of the Day of IRGC Navy on Tuesday attended by Military Attachés of several countries.
He added that Iran has never begun a war in the Persian Gulf and practiced restraint during the Eight-Year War when the US targeted Iran’s tankers, and oil platforms and terminals.
However, Iran entered a 1.5 year war with the US and the Americans incurred six slaps in the face, the commander said, referring to six operations by Iran against the US forces in the Persian Gulf in 1980s.
Iran won’t tolerate any insecurity and conflict in the Persian Gulf which is a home for Iran and neighbor countries, Tangsiri added, underlining that the US forces have no place in the Persian Gulf, as they brought insecurity everywhere they showed up.
He also stressed that the Israeli regime disturbs security of the Persian Gulf with its presence there and Muslim countries shouldn’t let them to have a presence there.
The IRGC Navy and the Army Navy would stand against any aggressor as a single force, he warned, saying that Iran was proud to build its defense equipment on its own.
