TEHRAN – A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has joined other top ranking military officials in dismissing claims by the U.S. Navy that an American warship patrolling the Persian Gulf was harassed by Iranian boats.

“Reports by American officials about the failure of the IRGC naval forces’ vessels to keep their distance and their confrontation with … [American] vessels are sheer lies,” Ali Fadavi, commander of the IRGC Navy, said on Tuesday, Press TV reported.
