Iran's Quds Force commander Brig. Gen. Esmail Ghaani on Tuesday commented on the explosion that occurred Sunday on board a U.S. Navy vessel off the coast of San Diego, stating that it was "the result of America's crimes and actions."
According to him, "the Americans are forbidden from blaming anyone else for what has occurred – it is a divine promise that those who do evil, will have evil done to them. These harsh days have yet to arrive – and there are very harsh days waiting for the U.S. and Israel."
As result of the explosion on Sunday, 21 soldiers and civilians were lightly hurt.
