The head of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami, declared that his country would "destroy" American warships that threaten its presence in the Gulf.

Salami told state television that forces would take out any U.S. warship that threatens the "security" of Iranian naval vessels, Reuters reported.

“I have ordered our naval forces to destroy any American terrorist force in the Persian Gulf that threatens security of Iran’s military or nonmilitary ships,” Salami said.

“Security of the Persian Gulf is part of Iran’s strategic priorities."

“I am telling the Americans that we are absolutely determined and serious in defending our national security, our water borders, our shipping safety, and our security forces, and we will respond decisively to any sabotage,” he added.

“Americans have experienced our power in the past and must learn from it.”

In January, Iran attacked airbases housing U.S. personnel after top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was killed.

11 Iranian vessels performed "dangerous and harassing approaches" to U.S. ships last week, according to the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif attacked Trump, writing:

“All you need to do is stop interfering in the affairs of other nations; mine especially.”

In January, Iran attacked airbases housing U.S. personnel after top Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani was killed.

"Soleimani was actively planning new attacks, and he was looking very seriously at our embassies, and not just the embassy in Baghdad," Trump said at the time.
