Iran admiral: US ships are a target in case of war

Published: 05.06.14, 11:22 / Israel News

TEHRAN - If war with the United States breaks out, the Iranians will target American aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, the navy chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard said Tuesday.


The remarks by Adm. Ali Fadavi of the hard-line Guard navy sharply contrast moderate President Hassan Rouhani's outreach policies toward the West.


Fadavi was quoted by the semi-official Fars news agency as saying the size of the US carriers makes them an "easy target."


Fadavi also says the Guard navy has already carried out an exercise targeting a mock-up of an American warship. (AP)
