IRGC chief says Americans have started “psychological war”

Tehran (ISNA) - The United States has started a psychological war in the region, the Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Major General Hossein Salami said in a parliament session on Sunday, according to a parliamentary spokesman.

The U.S. military has sent forces, including an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers, to the Middle East.

The USS Abraham Lincoln is replacing another carrier rotated out of the Persian Gulf last month, according to Reuters.

“Commander Salami, with attention to the situation in the region, presented an analysis that the Americans have started a psychological war because the comings and goings of their military is a normal matter,” the spokesman for the parliamentary leadership, Behrouz Nemati, said, summarizing General Salami’s comments, according to parliament’s ICANA news site.

Major General Hossein Salami was appointed as chief commander of IRGC last month.
