Tehran warned us aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf against erroneous actions. Otherwise, the ships will be sunk with the help of secret weapons, assure Iran.
Adviser to the commander of the Islamic revolutionary guard corps (IRGC) Morteza Korbani threatened the United States to “send to the bottom” of the Persian Gulf their aircraft carriers together in crews and aircraft if they “make their first mistake.” The word Korbani leads the TV channel Al-Mayadeen.
According to him, Iran can do this using “only two missiles, its new secret weapon.” What kind of weapon, he did not specify. “Wise Americans and experienced leaders will not allow extremist elements to go to war with Iran,” the adviser added.
In turn, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the decision of the United States to send an additional 1.5 thousand troops to the Middle East “poses a threat to international peace.” The decision was made against the backdrop of growing tensions between the US and Iran. The US President noted that by sending additional forces, Washington wants to protect the military already located in the region.
“The Americans put forward such accusations to justify their hostile policy and provoke tension in the Persian Gulf,” the TV channel quotes Zarif.
