Firm Response Awaits Violation of Territorial Waters

Firm Response Awaits Violation of Territorial Waters

Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari stressed that his forces will take decisive action against any violation of Iran’s territorial waters, without any exception.
Speaking to Tasnim News Agency in the central city of Arak on Sunday, the commander gave an assurance that the navy’s response to any hostile moves will be “crushing without any tolerance or special consideration.”
He recommended that the US naval forces avoid “making any mistake” in the region, because Iran has already made it clear that the Persian Gulf security should exclude all foreign forces. On January 12, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Naval Force captured 10 US Navy sailors inside Iran’s territorial waters in the Persian Gulf, but released them a day later following an apology and after investigations indicated that the intrusion into Iranian territorial waters was unintentional. In December 2015, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei underlined that security of the Persian Gulf region comes within the purview of regional countries alone and dismissed the US claim of promoting regional security.
