Brigadier General Ramadan Sharif – head of IRGC Public Relations Officer – released an interview about the arrested of the 10 US Marines by Iranian IRGC Navy. Sharif said that the American Marines were inside the Iranian territorial waters for “intelligence activity”. Sharif added that, after the inspections of the two US vessels, the Pasdaran have found technical equipment and light weapons.
Speaking about the release of the US Marines, Sharif denied that the release will be imminent, underlining that Tehran will act considering its own interest. In this sense, the IRCG general, said that Iranian behavior will be based on “Islamic mercy”.
