“If the Americans think of any plots, the Iranian nation will respond from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and to the Indian Ocean,” a top military adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, said on Friday.
The major general, who used to lead the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), warned that US President Donald Trump would share the fate of previous presidents, who’d “failed to impose their political will on the Iranian nation.”
Tensions have been running high between Washington and Tehran, after armed drones struck two Saudi state-run oil facilities over the weekend, temporarily disabling half of the kingdom’s oil production capacity.
Although Yemeni Houthi rebels quickly admitted to having attacked the oil sites, Riyadh and its major ally the US blamed Iran. The Islamic Republic vehemently denies being involved in the drone strikes.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the attack was tantamount to an act of war by Iran. Officials in Tehran, meanwhile, renewed their pledge to retaliate with full force if attacked by the US.
