Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Shekal Shih said on the 29th that if American ships enter Iranian territorial waters, Iran will respond severely.
Iran ’s Tasnim News Agency quoted Sheikhashi as saying that the recent threat of US President Trump against Iran is a “psychological war”, intended to gain public attention before the US presidential election.
Shekalsi criticized the actions of the US side “triggered the storm in the Persian Gulf.” He said that if the United States violates Iran ’s territorial waters or the interests of the Iranian people, it will incur a harsher response than before, and the United States knows this well.
Iran ’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Naval Commander Than Gesiri said on the day that, according to the order of the Supreme Leader Khamenei, Iran will strengthen infrastructure construction on the islands of the Persian Gulf and consolidate regional security.
He said that the main insecurity factor in the region is the deployment of foreign troops. Iran has always conveyed peaceful messages to regional countries. It is believed that the cooperation of regional countries can ensure the security of the Persian Gulf.
The U.S. Department of Defense said on the 15th that when the U.S. ships collaborated with helicopters in “international waters,” several vessels of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard made “dangerous” and “provocative” moves against the U.S.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guard stated on the 19th that the United States poses a new danger to regional security. The Revolutionary Guard will increase the patrol boats in the Persian Gulf to prevent the US Navy from taking new “unprofessional and dangerous” actions. Trump said on the 22nd that he had ordered the US Navy to destroy all Iranian gunboats that “harassed” US ships.
