The revolutionary “spirit of resistance”, of Iran prevent the US and its supporters to attack Iran directly, according to the statement of the senior Revolutionary Guards commander. The diplomatic relations between the two crucial global power Iran and the United States have been spiked due to war tensions, after sending more troops to the Middle East by the US, including an aircraft carrier, B-52 bombers and Patriot missiles. The deployment shows the force against the claims by the US officials to the response of the threats by Iran to US military forces, as well as interests in the specific territory.
Major General Gholamali Rashid said in a statement, “ if criminal America and its Western and regional allies don’t dare carry out a face-to-face military attack against our country it is because of the spirit of resistance and sacrifice of the people and youth”, according to the semi-official media agency.
US State Secretary Mike Pompeo has been addressed in a Twitter message by the advisor of the Iranian President Rouhani and he claimed the deployment of the US military forces as a purposeful incitement to the territory.
The advisor Hesameddin Ashena posted on Twitter, “You @SecPompeo do not bring warships to our region and call it deterrence. That’s called provocation. It compels Iran to illustrate its own deterrence, which you call provocation. Do you see the cycle? ”
Another Guards commander claims that the regular units of the Iranian military elite force had entire control on the Gulf waters north of the Strait of Hormuz.
Ali Fadavi was echoed, “ everything north of the Strait of Hormuz is under our control”, mentioning to the strait at the Southeastern end of the Gulf through which about a fifth of the oil which is devoured globally flows.
Fadavi told the media, “American battleships in the region are under the complete control of Iran’s army and the Revolutionary Guards ”, without presenting any details.
The US military said in a statement it would resume to fly and sail whatever allotted by the international law.
A representative of the US Central command Captain Bill Urban said, “ we stand ready with our allies and partners to ensure freedom of navigation and the free flow of commerce throughout the US Central Command area of responsibility”.
US President Donald Trump posted , “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!”.
