Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps deputy commander Brig. Gen. Hossein Salami has warned Riyadh and Abu Dhabi not to cross Tehran's "red lines."
"If you cross our red lines, we will surely cross yours. You know the storm the Iranian nation can create," Salami said in a speech during Friday prayers, as cited by Reuters.
The deputy commander also demanded that the United States "stop supporting the terrorists" warning that Washington would "pay the price" if it didn't.
Salami's remarks come on the heels of comments by Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seeyed Ali Khamenei accusing Saudi Arabia and the UAE of financing the perpetrators of Saturday's terror attack in Ahvaz, which killed at least 25 people and injured over 60 others. Khamenei described the attacks as "a continuation of the plots of the regional states that are puppets of the United States," adding that the goal of such terrorism was "to create insecurity in our dear country."
