Former IRGC Commander-in-Chief General Yahya Safavi, who currently serves as Supreme Leader Khamenei's Special Military Advisor, said in an address that was published by IRIB News (Iran) on September 20, 2019 that the Iranian people will retaliate from the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, and the Indian Ocean if the Americans are "contemplating a conspiracy." He said that any act against Iran would cause turmoil in the region as promised by Hizbullah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, and he said that the power of the Islamic Revolution is on the rise while the power of America and its supporters is declining. Safavi's speech was delivered prior to a Friday sermon in Tehran.

Following are excerpts:

 

General Yahya Safavi: If the Americans are contemplating a conspiracy, the Iranian people will retaliate from the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean. They should take the words of sayyed Hassan Nasrallah seriously. Any anti-Iranian act will cause turmoil in the region.

The Americans know that the new power of the Islamic Revolution and the Resistance Front is on the rise, whereas the power of America and its supporters is in decline.
