Gulf a Hell for US - IRGC Second-in-Command
By Staff, Agencies
The American forces come under intense psychological pressure whenever they enter the Gulf and consider the area as a hell, deputy commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps [IRGC] Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said.
Addressing a conference on Thursday, Fadavi said the IRGC Navy has established such high level of dominance in the Gulf that any foreign vessel entering the area is obligated to communicate with the Iranian forces in Persian language.
He said the American and European warships had to follow the rule after a short period and began to respond to the Iranian naval forces in Persian.
“They [foreign forces] come under strong pressure in encounters with us [in the Gulf]. The number of American naval accidents has risen greatly, which results from the psychological pressure on them,” the general added.
“Whenever they [Americans] enter the Gulf, they say among themselves that ‘we entered the hell’. Also, whenever they leave the Gulf, they say ‘we got out of the hell’. They are in tough mental and psychological conditions,” Rear Admiral Fadavi noted.
The IRGC Navy is in charge of ensuring security in Iran’s territorial waters in the Gulf.
