Iran Threatens To Close Mediterranean Sea Over Israeli War On Gaza

File image.

A senior commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) warned that the Mediterranean Sea could be closed if the United States and its allies continued to commit “crimes” in the Gaza Strip, Iranian media reported on December 23.

Iran backs the Hamas Movement that rules Gaza and it accuses the United States of supporting the Israeli war on the Strip, which has so far claimed the lives of more than 20,000 Palestinians most of whom were reportedly women and children.

“They shall soon await the closure of the Mediterranean Sea, (the Strait of) Gibraltar and other waterways,” Tasnim quoted Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, coordinating commander of the Guards, as saying.

Iran has no direct access to the Mediterranean Sea. The country is allied to the Syrian government and Hezbollah in Lebanon. However, both are located far away from the Strait of Gibraltar.

“Yesterday, the Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz became a nightmare for them, and today they are trapped in the Red Sea,” Naqdi was quoted as saying.

The Iranian-backed Houthis (Ansar Allah) in Yemen attacked several ships owned by Israel or sailing to the country through the Red Sea in response to the war in Gaza, leading some of the world’s largest shipping companies to switch routes.

The White House on December 22 alleged that Iran was “deeply involved” in planning Houthi operations against ships in the Red Sea.

to make the blockade on the zionist scum regime truly effective gulf states must close all land routes used to supply the zionists. let’s see if the gulf states truly support their “palestinian brothers” or if it is just “lip service” once again.

i think this time it is different. some 90 percent of the people in the west are supporting palestine and only 10 percent see the conflict as “israel has the right to defend itself”. i mean it’s not wrong to defend your country but it is not ok to massacre civilians and sell it as the right of self defence. they (israel) went too far and it backfired.

And The World Remains Silent!

i would be quite surprised if that was true, because a recent article i heard, quoting a poll, i do not remember when the poll was conducted, but it said the american population and the israeli population supports israel slaughtering all of the palestinians, which comes as no surprise. and the poll said the above populations did not believe israel was conducting genocide in gaza! shocker right?

by far, most americans are very much against this war. many would like to see israel get it’s due. the majority of the people who support israel are trumpets, who claims to be the best president israel ever had. even evangelists, who are pro-trump are finding this to be unacceptable…even though they themselves pushed for this.

zman

how the people feel and how congress acts are two different birds. in general older conservatives are more brainwashed and believe israel. younger people don’t get their info from tv and aren’t nearly as brainwashed. then there are those who realize israel is not our friend and can’t wait for israel to fall and they are growing in number.

And The World Remains Silent!

all these pathetic arab nations and iran does is threaten! how about actually just doing something for once, let your bombs dropping on israel be your threat! how can the lowly hemenis have more backbone than all the surrounding arab nations and be the only one standing up to israel! hell, there is even arab nations that joined the coalition formed by the u.s. to counter the blockade by the houthis. i have zero respect for muslim world, and maybe that’s why israel acts the way that they do

Cromwell

they should have sent an arab army into gaza by now through egypt, i mean what are the zionist thugs going to attack egypt lol!

Boycott usa the world's bully

israel is backed with its own atomic weapons and by the usa navy with 1’000’s cruise missiles. so not easy to escalate against israel. the main victims of their retaliation would be egypt, iran, etc, civilians.

Rick

there’s a difference between the arab people and arab leaders. the leaders do zionist bidding and the people are too scared to revolt against their corrupt government. the blockade wouldn’t e successful without egypt.

Rick

israel has nukes don’t forget! iran is doing the only thing it can without committing national suicide which is to provide its proxy’s with weapons and target data. it’s more then any other country put together.

What It Once Was

this has yet to be proven 100%. the speculation of such does not mean it is true and if they did and used them. they are fooked as well. some one with a larger arsenal would turn them to ash for fear of a future strike. it is not 1945 anymore skippy. usa does not stand alone.

the first rule of leadership is to let people know what you’re doing, what your plans are and what they can and cannot do.

for that hisbollah an iran must destroy with an coordinate attac all ports and airports, because these are the main supply routes from the west, with additional blockade from libanon, jordan and egypt, while the last both are traitors and zio collaborators.

Huckelberry finn

send enough cruise missiles to destroy israeli fighter jets, runways (like they regularly do in syria) and navy. that leaves supposedly nuclear capable subs, but if israel nukes tehran, they would flatten tel aviv

huhu

irg can blockade israeli ports from the south through yemeni proxies and from the north through lebanese proxies and the vast majority of muslim countries will be fine with that. i think even russia and china will quietly support as long as their vessels are allowed to suez, and maybe able to veto in the un if the us comes up with some fancy resolution. i would call it counter “sanctions” against us allies. who on the earth are us and eu? they think they can do anything and get away with it ?

well the world let them get away with everything since world war two or even before. you can’t blame them for believing this is normal. iran and his axis of resistance should just think what they are doing. right now it is the narrative that crasy isreal whants to murder innocent palestinians. but if the resistance axis goes too far it might swich back to the prefered narrative of muslims = terrorists.

they don’t have to mess with gibraltar. they just need to demonstrate that they can hit ships anywhere in the mediterranean sea and voila, instant insurance nightmare.

big mouth mullahs with no reaction. give an ultimatum. coordinate with houthi an hisbollah blockade of israeli ports and routes, close the red sea in the south and the hormuz passage, as long as the war goes on. than 50% of oil trade would collapse and united nations and west would be forced to react and stop the zio masscre in gaza.

whatever the houthis can do to slow the pace of murder by the sadistic lunatics of the west should be welcomed. drones and anti-ship missiles against merchant ships anywhere would give insurers something to think about.

yeah i find this amazing as well. at the same time, the usa/nato and rest of the collective west think they can tell russia what to do. when will they finally all wake up and get it. the hegemony is done, they are on their way out and brics is on the way in. china is the new world manufacturer and they cannot change this. self inflicted to boot. they can stomp their feet, cry all day, complain, make threats, facts are facts usa is done and no longer the go to guys.

gibraltar is a choke point but i have no idea how iran could make a credible threat in that location. they have a brown, not a blue water navy and it’s way out of the range of their missiles and drones
