Iranian army will severely respond to any U.S. hostile action against this country; that includes even entering Iran's airspace. FARS, the state-run news agency reported that on Tuesday with reference to Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri, Chief of Staff of Iranian Armed Forces.  

‘If any enemy plane enters Iran's airspace, the Air Defense Base rapidly gives a warning to it but unfortunately, the arrogant countries make hues and cries that Iran has given a warning to the US plane. The enemies should know that warning enemy planes is Iran's least reaction,’ Baqeri said.

FARS went on writing that the official ‘also lashed out at the US for demanding Iran's coordination with its warships deployed in the Persian Gulf when approaching them as an excessive demand and ridiculous, and said his country should defend its interests in the Persian Gulf’.

In July, Brigadier General Rasoul Sanayee Rad, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander for political affairs warned the U.S. that unprofessional behavior of its Navy in the Persian Gulf would end up in grave consequences.
