RNA – In a short message on the arrival of five Iranian tankers carrying gasoline and alkylate to the ports of Venezuela, Hujjat al-Islam Mir-Ahmad Hajati, a senior teacher in the Islamic Seminaries of Ahvaz, stated:
The passing of Iranian tankers flying the sacred flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran through the Suez Canal, the Strait of Gibraltar and the Atlantic Ocean and their arrival at Venezuelan ports at the height of the Yankees’ interference and bellowing is one of the most horrific blows since the [Iranian] attack on the Ayn al-Asad Airbase [US armed forces base in Iraq] and the fulfillment one hundred times over of the strategic statement of the “Spirit of God” [Imam Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeyni] that “America cannot do a damned thing.”
If some agents of the liberal ideology and persuasion deeply believed in the two leaders of the Islamic Revolution, the storm-stricken ship of the country’s management would also reach the beach of victory.
The first of five Iranian tankers carrying 1.53 million barrels of gasoline and alkylate reached Venezuelan waters late on the evening of May 23rd to ease the Latin American nation’s fuel crunch.
The shipments have infuriated Washington as both Iran and Venezuela are under illegal US sanctions.
The United States recently beefed up its naval presence in the Caribbean for what it called an expanded anti-drug operation.
Washington has also threatened to take measures especially against Iran, according to a senior United States official, who did not provide further details.
Iran’s President Hasan Rouhani on Saturday warned of retaliatory measures against the United States if it caused problems for tankers.
