Iran declared readiness to attack Israel in the Persian Gulf without warning

In Iran, they declared their readiness for war if Israel appeared in the Persian Gulf.

Against the backdrop of Israel’s statement that the airspace over the Persian Gulf will be patrolled by military aircraft and UAVs in Iran, Iran announced its immediate readiness to respond to this, including attacking Israeli aircraft without warning, threatening to foment war.

“We [Iran] must say that any illegal presence of [Israel] in the waters of the Persian Gulf could spark a war”- said the Commander of the Naval Forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC, elite units of the Iranian Armed Forces) Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri.

No official statements have been made by Israel on this subject, however, the position of Iran unexpectedly found support from the Iraqi authorities, where they emphasized that the presence of Israel would not only create an occasion for a new conflict, but would only complicate the situation in the Persian Gulf.

It should be clarified that the real presence of Israel in the Persian Gulf is still unknown, however, experts position this as a clear provocation directed, first of all, against Iran.
