A member of the Board of Directors of the Assembly of Experts‏ ‏appreciated the IRGC’s ‎decisive capture of a British oil tanker in the Strait of Hormuz and said, “The arrogant powers ‎of the world have become desperate and see themselves as having been defeated.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Ayatollah Sayyed Ahmad Khatami, a ‎member of the Board of Directors of the Assembly of Experts, appreciated the decisive ‎action taken by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) by capturing the British oil ‎tanker Stena Impero in the Strait of Hormuz on July 19th and said, “The right to retaliate in a ‎reciprocal manner is a natural and rational right upon which the Quran emphasizes.”‎

The member of the board of directors of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom referred ‎to the verse of the Holy Quran, “So should anyone aggress against you, assail him in the ‎manner he assailed you” [2:194] and added, “In response to the arrogant powers and ‎mercenaries who don’t understand anything other than the language of force, we must act in ‎a like manner. What has been done is the administration of justice and the exercise of the ‎clear rights of the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” ‎

Arguing that the arrogant powers of the world are in complete desperation and see ‎themselves as having failed, Ayatollah Khatami said, “Through their bulling measures, the ‎arrogant powers want to counter the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran and take ‎the seat of power.” ‎

His Eminence stated that the only way to overcome the enemies is through Resistance ‎Diplomacy and power and said, “In this situation, the only response is to retaliate in a ‎reciprocal manner and with the help of God, the enemies of the Islamic system of ‎government will be crippled.”‎

The member of the Supreme Council of the Islamic Seminaries emphasized, “In order for ‎these measures to be effective is through endurance and not to abandon of battlefield.”‎

On July 19, the IRGC Navy captured British oil tanker Stena Impero for violating international ‎maritime laws when crossing the high-traffic Strait of Hormuz.‎
