IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Hossein Salami said in an April 23, 2020 interview on Channel 2 (Iran) that Iran will respond to any American action in a “decisive, effective, and swift“ fashion, and that he has instructed Iran’s naval units that if any vessel or combat unit from the naval forces of “the terrorist American military“ tries to endanger Iran’s civilian or military vessels, those American vessels or units should be targeted.

Hossein Salami: “We will respond to any [American] step with a decisive, effective, and swift step. The Americans have already experienced our measures in the past. The lessons [they have learned] should be enough for them to accept these facts. We have also instructed our military units at sea that if any vessel or combat unit from the naval forces of the terrorist American military attempts to put our civilian or military vessels at risk, that vessel should be targeted.
