IRGC Commander:
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami blasted the US president for his unacceptable diplomatic behavior, and said Donald Trump is leading his country towards decline and defeat.

RNA - "The US is on the verge of collapse due to its unwise leaders," Major General Salami said on Tuesday.

He reiterated that the Americans are on the path of decline despite having all that power and holding the upper hand in the fields of economy, politics, culture and military forces, and said, "This is because their leadership lacks wisdom.”

The IRGC commander, meantime, said that the US wrongly blames Iran for the recent drone raids on major Saudi oil facilities despite knowing that the attacks were carried out by Yemen’s Ansarullah movement.

The Americans cannot accept the fact Ansarullah forces have managed to promote their defense capabilities under sanctions and siege and launch such drone raids.

On September 14, Yemen’s Ansarullah movement and their allies in the Yemeni army deployed as many as 10 drones to bomb Abqaiq and Khurais oil facilities run by the Saudi state-owned oil company Aramco.

The unprecedented attack knocked out more than half of Saudi crude output, or five percent of global supply, prompting Saudi and US officials to claim without any evidence that it probably originated from Iraq or Iran.

Tehran, however, has dismissed the allegations, saying Washington seems to be shifting from a failed campaign of “maximum pressure” to one of “maximum lying” and “deceit” against the Islamic Republic.
