Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Chief of Staff Mohammad Rexa Naqdi warned on Dec. 23 that just as access to the Red Sea has been restricted, so too may the Mediterranean, reported Tasnim News.

According to a machine translation from Farsi into English, Tasnim wrote: “Referring to the crimes committed by the Zionist regime and the United States in Gaza, the deputy coordinator of the IRGC said: ‘The Zionist regime and the United States have gone mad due to the severity of their crimes and brutality, and they cannot even recognize their own interests. They win in front of their tanks on the burnt ground and they cannot even learn from the past events….’

Naqdi was speaking at this year’s memorial for former Iranian ambassador to Yemen Hassan Irloo, who had died in December 2021.
