Iranian Admiral Threatens to ‘Drown’ U.S. Warships in Persian Gulf



Iran would drown U.S. warships if they pose a threat to the Middle Eastern country, warns a commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy.

“Wherever the Americans look in the Persian Gulf, they will see us”

“They know that if they commit the slightest mistake, we will drown their vessels in the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, or the Sea of Oman,” he added.

Rear Adm. Fadavi’s comments came while he was speaking on the state-controlled Press TV.

The Islamic Republic’s enemies are not aware of the country’s full military capabilities, noted the commander, highlighting the Iranian Navy’s alleged defense might.

Fadavi, shedding light on the American military presence said, “The US has attracted regional and non-regional allies in the waters forming an unnatural military array,” reported state-controlled Mehr News Agency (MNA).
