Iranian commander: U.S. Congress should “take lesson” from US boats seizure. (Taz).
Iranian Armed Forces' Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi has urged the US Congress to “take a lesson” from the seizure of two American boats, as well as 10 sailors onboard.
Earlier today, Iran’s IRGC said on its website that it released the US sailors, who were arrested Jan. 12 as they drifted into Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf in their patrol boats.
“I hope those in the US Congress who pose obstacles [presumably to the implementation of the nuclear deal between Iran and the world powers] will take a lesson from the incident that took place in the north of the Persian Gulf, which probably won’t be the American forces’ last mistake in the region,” Tasnim news agency quoted Firouzabadi as saying Jan. 13.
“If the Iranian commanders didn’t show tact and goodwill, the Americans would have a serious catastrophe,” he further said. Read the full story here.
