Rezaei urges Trump to recall 2016 Farsi Island incident

TEHRAN, Oct. 12 (MNA) – A former commander of the Iran Revolutionary Guards Corps waned US President Trump not to forget 2016 Farsi Island incident, noting “your dreams will not come true.”

Secretary of the Expediency Council and former IRGC Commander Mohsen Rezaee posted Thursday in his Twitter account and responded to the US threat to place the name of IRGC in the list of terrorist groups.

“Have you forgotten what happened to the US sailors encroaching on Iranian territory in Farsi Island last year? Your dreams will not come true,” he wrote.

Trump needs to confront with the Revolutionary Guards Corps to see how millions of people join it, he added.

On January 12, 2016 two United States Navy riverine command boats cruising from Kuwait to Bahrain with a combined crew of nine men and one woman on board strayed into Iranian territorial waters and immediately were stopped and arrested by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Navy.

      Thanks for returning our men. Thanks for doing so quickly. I think it is generally agreed the incident was an accident.
