Tehran accuses US forces of ‘provoking’ Iranian sailors in Persian Gulf

Iran’s foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has slammed American forces for acting in a “provoking” manner towards Iranian sailors in the Persian Gulf, where the US has no business being.

Zarif didn’t mince his words in his tweet, which also had a map attached, showing the distance of 7,592 miles from US shores to the Gulf.

American ships “have no business 7,000 miles away from home, provoking our sailors,” he wrote.

    The US military is hit by over 5000 #covid19 infections. @realdonaldtrump should attend to their needs, not engage in threats cheered on by Saddam's terrorists.Also, US forces have no business 7,000 miles away from home, provoking our sailors off our OWN Persian Gulf shores. pic.twitter.com/7CjzabkyVK

Zarif also criticized the high coronavirus infection rates in the US military, which has reported more than 5,000 confirmed Covid-19 cases so far.

This comes in response to US President Donald Trump’s tweet threatening to “shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea” – a view Trump reiterated during a White House press conference.

    I have instructed the United States Navy to shoot down and destroy any and all Iranian gunboats if they harass our ships at sea.

The exchange was prompted by a confrontation in the Persian Gulf between the US and Iran, and growing tension between the two countries. A week earlier, the US navy accused the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) of “dangerous and provocative” actions against its vessels.

In response, the IRGC said it would give a “decisive response” to any mistake made by the US in the Gulf, and accused the US of violating international law and maritime protocols regulating navigation in the area.

Iran has also announced that, in response to perceived US threat, it will be summoning the Swiss ambassador, who represents US interests in the country in the absence of an American diplomatic mission.

Iran will never initiate any conflict

Tehran will not be the instigator of hostilities with the US in the region, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has said. The countries traded military threats earlier this week

Rouhani made his comments during a phone call with the Emir of Qatar, Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, on Saturday. “The Islamic Republic of Iran closely monitors and tracks the activities and movements of the Americans, but will never initiate any conflict or tension in the region,” he said.

At the same time, Rouhani reiterated that Tehran considers the US sanctions against the country illegal under international law, and said that they are preventing the International Monetary Fund (IMF) from lending Iran money amid the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.

    We believe that all countries must stand together in the fight against the coronavirus and take a clear stand against the hostile actions of the United States
On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump warned that he has issued an order to destroy Iranian patrol boats if they “harass” American ships. The commander of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Major General Hossein Salami, responded by saying that the nation’s naval forces will attack US ships if they target any Iranian vessels, including non-military ones.

Several US and Iranian warships were involved in a standoff in the Persian Gulf last week, with both sides accusing each other of provocations.
