On the same day that Iranian naval forces capture two American naval vessels and 10 sailors, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi blamed the US navy for what it called “unprofessional moves.” On January 12,  the IRGC seized the boats and crew members, detaining them Iran’s Farsi Island in the Persian Gulf. The crew and Riverine Command Boats have since been allowed to leave Iran.

After the capture of the craft and crews, two US and French aircraft carriers as well as their accompanying fleets and aircraft began manuevres near Iran’s territorial waters. Rear Admiral Fadavi said after the release of the sailor, “The USS Truman Aircraft carrier showed unprofessional moves for 40 minutes after the detention of the trespassers, while we were highly prepared with our coast-to-sea missiles, missile-launching speedboats and our numerous capabilities.” He claimed that his forces were ready and willing to strike in case of any hostile moves.
 
 
“After that the US navy and a US aircraft-carrier showed unprofessional behavior for about 40 minutes and made some moves in the air and the sea in the region…but calm was restored to the region with the timely action of the IRGC forces and came under our 100 percent control,” Admiral Fadavi said. He also claimed that the IRGC Navy is fully in control of the Persian Gulf and Hormuz Strait through which much of the world’s oil flows.
