Iran threatens to 'destroy terrorist American ships'

Iran threatens to 'destroy terrorist American ships'

At a subsequent meeting he said that "we don't want their gunboats to encircle our ships and have a good experience".

"We're not going to stand for it.they'll shoot them out of the water".

A day earlier, Hatami said the "illegal and aggressive" presence of US forces in the Gulf is causing insecurity in the region, Press TV reported.

In 2018, Mr Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal between Iran and other world powers, reimposing sanctions on Iran.

Resolution 2231, which endorsed a 2015 multilateral nuclear deal between Iran and six other countries - from which the United States later withdrew - "called on" Iran "not to undertake any activity related to ballistic missiles created to be capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such ballistic missile technology", but did not prohibit Tehran from launching satellites.

In response, the USA carried out a strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Iran retaliated on January 8 with a rocket attack on Iraq's Ain al-Asad base where United States forces were stationed. Days later, Iran launched a barrage of missiles on two Iraqi airbases housing American troops, causing minor injuries to more than 100 soldiers. "Part of Iran's peaceful space programme is civilian which is pursued by the government, while another part is for peaceful defence purposes and naturally carried out by the armed forces", tweeted Jahromi.

KELEMEN: Critics of the maximum pressure campaign say these are signs that the US policy is failing if it is really meant to get Iran back to the negotiating table and not to provoke a conflict with Iran.

No shots were fired, but the Pentagon said the Iranians engaged in "dangerous and provocative actions" that risked collision or worse. Senior Pentagon officials gave no indication that Trump had directed a fundamental change in military policy on Iran. "What he was emphasizing is, all of our ships retain the right of self defense".

Rep. Elaine Luria, a Virginia Democrat and Navy veteran, said Trump's tweeting could lead to war.

Iran says the disease has claimed the lives of nearly 5 400 people and infected almost 86 000 since the outbreak emerged on 19 February.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps boats "repeatedly crossed the bows and sterns of the United States vessels at extremely close range and high speeds", coming at one point within 9m of the bow of one ship.

"It depends on the situation, what the captain sees", he said. He suggested that the US should focus on saving its servicemembers from coronavirus infection.

Borell went on to argue that in the time of the pandemic, sanctions should not get in the way of humanitarian aid and supplies, apparently referring to Iran's complaints that the economic barriers imposed by the USA have limited the country's ability to get hold of medical equipment needed to fight the outbreak.

On April 22, the IRGC said it launched a military satellite into orbit after months of failed attempts, further exacerbating the situation.

Trump's tweet came hours after Iran launched a military satellite into space.

The paramilitary force said it used a Ghased, or "Messenger", satellite carrier to put the device into space, a previously unheard-of system.

"We declare to the Americans that we are absolutely determined and serious. and that all action will be met with a decisive response that will be efficient and quick", said Major General Hossein Salami on state television. Jack Keane told "Outnumbered Overtime" Thursday that Iran believes "the United States has turned inward".

On the other hand, Russian Federation has no information signifying that Iran has tested a missile for carrying nuclear weapons, he said.

On Wednesday, the USA secretary of State Mike Pomep warned Tehran of grave consequences of its action, saying: "I think Iran needs to be held accountable for what they've done".

Trump's continuation of war rhetoric in the ongoing dispute with Iran is likely to continue to destabilize the region.

Iran now has short- and intermediate-range missiles.
