“In the wake of (last week’s) unfair attack, it is Iran’s duty to defend the innocent people of Gaza,” Mehr News Agency, quoted Ali Shirazi, the Leader’s representative in the IRGC naval forces, as saying on Sunday.
“Iran’s naval forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities,” Shirazi added.
Shirazi went on to say that if the Leader of the Islamic Revolution issued a decree, the IRGC naval forces would immediately dispatch escort ships.
Despite international outrage over the deadly assault, which has triggered massive protests in Europe and the Middle East, Israeli commandoes boarded another aid ship on Saturday.
