A senior Iranian naval commander claimed Saturday that his forces had dealt nine blows to the United States to avenge the deaths of its troops. According to Iranian media, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy, Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri, said that the IRGC has suffered nine fatalities in clashes with the US in the Persian Gulf, and responded each time by hitting back. He did not clarify when those nine deaths occurred.

“We have given them nine unforgettable slaps, that is one for each of our martyrs,” Tangsiri said, adding that many of the incidents have not been reported by the media, according to a report by the Mehr News Agency. Six of the incidents were in the last year and a half, he said. It was not reported when the other three incidents that he mentioned had allegedly occurred. His claims were therefore impossible to verify.
