IRGC General Says Saudi Arabia Is Iran’s Enemy

Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council (EC) and a senior IRGC General Mohsen Rezaei described Riyadh as Tehran’s enemy.

“Today, Saudi Arabia is our enemy and Turkey is our rival,” Rezaei, a former commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said, addressing a congress in the Western province of Kohgilouyeh and Boyer Ahmad on Sunday.

Referring to the US support for Saudi Arabia, he said, “One day, they will see that Wahhabism will disgrace them in a way worse than the ISIS terrorist group.”

Rezaei expressed regret that the US has learned no lesson from the crimes committed by the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and the ISIS against the people, as reported by Fars and edited by IFP.

“Iran is asking them why they enter the lands of independent countries like Syria and Yemen.”

He called on regional countries to protect their independence and avoid becoming a puppet of the US and Israel, and asked, “Why shouldn’t a country like Saudi Arabia experience democracy? Why shouldn’t its people decide their own fate?”
