Former Iranian diplomat Seyyed Hadi Seyyed Afghahi said in a November 3, 2021 interview on Al-Alam TV (Iran) that the entire Iranian nation is united behind the IRGC and that there are martyrdom-seekers "who will make the water of the Persian Gulf red with the blood of Americans and anybody who joins them."

If we need, there are martyrdom-seekers who will make the water of the Persian Gulf red with the blood of the Americans and anybody who joins them in any adventure.
