US Moves in Persian Gulf Reflect Fear

US Moves in Persian Gulf Reflect FearUS Moves in Persian Gulf Reflect Fear

A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said the recent moves of US warships in the Persian Gulf are a sign of their fear. “The Persian Gulf belongs to the Islamic Republic and regional Muslim countries, and the presence of US forces, as a foreign country in this region, is defensive and out of fear,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, the commander of IRGC Navy, told reporters on Monday, Press TV reported.

The commander said Iran is in control of the Persian Gulf and would definitely boost its power in the region. In a statement on Saturday, the IRGC Navy reported a second act of provocation by US warships in the Persian Gulf waters less than a week after a similar incident in the same region. It said a US supercarrier and its accompanying warship flew a helicopter near the Resalat oil and gas platform and approached the IRGC ships.

The development came a few days after a similar incident in the northern part of the Persian Gulf, where a US Navy ship sailed toward an IRGC Navy ship, which was patrolling its international waters and fired two shots into the air.
