In an Iranian TV interview, Iranian Deputy Chief of Staff Brig.-Gen. Masoud Jazayeri threatened the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, saying: "There is a limit to Iran's self-restraint." Sending humanitarian aid to the region would "spark a strong fire, which they will not be able to extinguish," he said. An excerpt from the full interview was posted on the Internet, and then aired by Al-Alam TV with Arabic subtitles on May 13, 2015. The full interview has not yet been broadcast.
