Iran’s Revolutionary Guards send a warning to Saudi navy not to get too close to Iranian waters

The US against Russia. Saudi Arabia against Iran. Tensions are high, and increasing by the day.

Syria is experiencing a proxy war between the two sides, with geopolitical implications and global energy control at stake. The entire region is a tinder box, and US/Saudi support for ISIS and Al Qaeda is the linchpin.

Reuters is reporting that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) warned Saudi naval vessels taking part in military exercises in the Gulf not to get close to Iranian waters.

The IRGC said in a statement published on Tasnim news agency…

“The Revolutionary Guards naval forces believe this war game is mainly to create tension and destabilize the Persian Gulf.”

Reuters reports

Saudi Arabia began naval war games including live fire exercises on Tuesday in the Gulf and Strait of Hormuz, the world’s most important oil route.

Tehran and Riyadh are fighting several proxy wars in the Middle East, including in Syria and Yemen, but both have been cautious about direct military confrontation.

About 17 million barrels per day, or about 30 percent of all seaborne-traded oil, passed through the Strait of Hormuz in 2013, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
