Commander Stresses Iranian Navy's Obedience to Supreme Leader

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari reiterated his forces' full obedience to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei.

Referring to recent instructions to the Navy by Ayatollah Khamenei, the commander said that directions set by the Leader during the past 30 years have started a new chapter in making use of the marine resources by the Iranian Navy which should be followed diligently.

Israel and its close ally the United States accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

The Zionist regime has recently intensified its war rhetoric against Tehran, warning that it plans to hit Iranian nuclear facilities.

Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.

The United States has also always stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran's progress in the field of nuclear technology.

In response, Iran has warned it would hit the US, Israel and their worldwide interests and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.

Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.
