Discussing the Iranian navy’s daily confrontations with US vessels, a senior Iranian official military boasted that the Americans will “lose their life and existence” in a struggle against Tehran.
According to Iran’s semi-official FARS news agency, on Wednesday, during a speech addressing members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and Basij security forces, Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi emphasized the power of his country’s coast-to-sea missile systems and fleet of high-powered speed boats, whose purpose is to counter American warships in the region, especially in the Persian Gulf.
“The Americans have realized today that if they embark on war they will sustain defeat, given the Islamic Revolution’s capabilities, Fadavi” said.
A naval confrontation with the US has long been one of the scenarios that the Iranian military has prepared for, the likelihood of which has increased since tensions, spurred on by the current Yemen conflict, have escalated.
