(Worthy News)-- Iran threatened to declare war on any country that attacks a ship it says contains humanitarian aid currently making its way to Yemen, accompanied by warships. The warning came amid heightened tensions after the Islamic Republic seized a cargo ship last month, the Times of Israel reported.
Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier-General Massoud Jazzayeri warned that any attack on “the Iranian Red Crescent aid ship will spark war in the region. And this fire may not be put out or brought under control.”
"The US and Saudi Arabia should know that Iran's self-restraint has a limit," he told the Arabic-language TV Alalam, according to the semi-official Fars news agency. --[wp_colorbox_media url=" " type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
