Tehran (IP)- A senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says a conflagration and subsequent massive blast that has hit a huge American warship has been the result of the US government’s own crimes.

Iran Press/Iran News: Addressing a meeting of senior resistance commanders, Commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Brigadier General Esmail Qa’ani urged the Americans “not to waste their time looking for a culprit or level accusations against others” over what happened to the navy ship off San Diego.
