Yemenis, Humanely, Are Not Bombing Saudi Cities - IRGC Top Chief
By Staff, Agencies
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps [IRGC] Top Commander Major General Hossein Salami highlighted Yemen’s growing might in the face of the Saudi aggression, stressing that Yemenis are acting humanely by not bombing Saudi cities.
Stressing that all Saudi airports are within the range of the Yemeni drones and missiles, Salami noted that Yemen was able today to make the United States, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates helpless.
He further noted that Saudi leaders now don’t know what to do as their oil refineries and airports are no longer safe.
Salami’s remarks were made in the Iranian holy city of Mashhad on Saturday where he highlighter the Islamic Republic’s major role in protecting the Gulf’s security and said enemies are unable to make the waters insecure.
“With the grace of God, security has been established with the influential presence of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Salami told reporters.
“The security of the Persian Gulf is at the powerful hands of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the enemies will not be able to undermine this security,” the top commander added.
He further pointed to a recent missile test and said the country has always been testing a variety of defense and strategic systems.
The remarks come as the US announced plans to form a coalition to supposedly protect shipping in the Strait of Hormuz from what it calls an Iranian threat following a series of mysterious attacks on oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz and the Sea of Oman.
Washington accused Iran of having a hand in those attacks, a claim Tehran has strongly rejected. Tehran warned that such sabotage operations may be part of a general ploy to target Iran amid increasing regional tensions.
The US has asked its allies, including Germany, Japan, France, Britain and ‘Israel’, to join the coalition.
The call has, however, not been warmly received, with ‘Israel’ and Britain becoming the only parties which have said flat out that they would join the alliance.
