Iran’s General Guard Hossein Salami threatened the U.S Navy after President Trump tweeted stating that he would bring down Iran. Earlier Iran had called up for the Swiss diplomat who had shown that the U.S has been keen on Iran and to give them allegations on Trump’s threat.
But the attacks between the two nations have been halted due to the COVID-19 breakout. And Iran had been criticizing Trump’s office on the pressure policies in the military as well as in diplomatic.
Further, Hossein had now introduced the ‘first military satellite along with a secret space program on Wednesday.’
Talking to the media he said that U.S: “will answer any action by a decisive, effective and quick counteraction.”
He continued saying: “We have ordered our naval units at sea that if any warships or military units from the naval force of America’s terrorist army want to jeopardize our commercial vessels or our combat vessels, they must target those (American) warships or naval units.”
The current feud began when the U.S Navy stated that in the previous week “11 Iranian Guard naval gunboats had taken “dangerous and harassing approaches” to American Navy and Coast Guard Vessels in the Persian Gulf.”
Moreover, the U.S officials had said that they had to give nonlethal threats to the Iran boats to make them leave. But, the Iran authorities told it vice versa and without any proofs.
Iran navy had always had bad encounters in the ocean with the U.S Navy in the Persian Gulf and in Strait of Hormuz where 20% of oil passes by. Meanwhile, the U.S has been safeguarding the place to have secured worldwide shipping for years.
Trump who is already having a crucial crisis due to the downfall of the world market and pandemic outbreak and as well as his upcoming elections, wrote: “to shoot and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.”
He added saying: “We don’t want their gunboats surrounding our boats, and traveling around our boats and having a good time,” Trump told reporters Wednesday evening at the White House. “We’re not going to stand for it. … They’ll shoot them out of the water.”
