BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – Iran’s Minister of Cultural and Social Affairs Hussein Najat said on Tuesday that his country’s forces would destroy U.S. aircraft carriers in Gulf waters if any folly against Iran were committed.
“American bases in the region are in the range of Iranian missiles,” Najat said. “Our missiles will target U.S. bases in neighboring Arab countries in the event of any attack on our country.”
The Iranian military official stressed that “the war is not on Trump’s agenda and he wants to drag Tehran to negotiate through the maximum pressure.”
Najat pointed out that U.S. President Donald Trump did not respond to the downing of the previous spy plane, knowing that “the bases from which U.S. operations will be conducted from are in the range of our missiles.”
“Iran has put Israel’s security at risk and now it is troubling Saudi Arabia, America and Israel. Tehran is fighting the war at the enemy’s borders and not on its borders,” he warned.
