Tehran (ISNA) - The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy warned that Iran will give a decisive response to any US provocation or computational error.

Pointing to an incident took place in the Persian Gulf on April 15, the IRGC navy said in a statement, "The US' narration of the incident is fake and fictitious. The reality is contrary to the US' claim and we will respond decisively to any US provocation or computational error".

"We advise the Americans to follow international regulations and maritime protocols in the Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman and to refrain from any adventurism and false and fake stories," the statement said.

"They should be assured that the Revolutionary Guards navy and the powerful armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran sees the dangerous actions of foreigners in the region as a threat to national security and its red line and any error in calculation on their part will receive a decisive response," it added.

The IRGC' reaction comes after the US said on Wednesday that 11 vessels of the Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy had come too close to US Navy and Coast Guard ships in the Gulf. Washington referred to the move as "dangerous and provocative".
