Iran’s Defense Minister has warned the dominion that nowhere can be protected besides Islam’s holiest locations Mecca and Medina if Saudi Arabia does something “ignorant.”
Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan made the feedback on Sunday after a Saudi prince threatened to maneuver the Sunni- Shia “battle” of Islam into Iranian territory.
Since the U.S. invasion of Iraq and subsequent withdrawal, the Middle East has been consumed by the likes of Al-Qaeda and ISIS.
Iran has been using Hezbollah for preventing and coaching in response to occasions in its neighborhood.
The Sunni-Shia battle of Islam was unparalleled previous to 9/11.
Saudi Arabia has been offering extremist doctrine to Al-Qaeda, and in a while to ISIS, ever for the reason that Russian invasion of Afghanistan through the 1980s.

Asked by Arabic-language Al-Manar TV about Saudi Defense Minister Mohammed bin Salman’s latest risk that any battlefield could be inside Iran not Saudi Arabia, Dehqan mentioned on Sunday, “They think they can do something because of having an air force.”
“We recommend them (Saudis) not to make any ignorant move, but if they do, we will not leave anywhere intact except (Muslim holy cities of) Mecca and Medina,” he added.
It got here after bin Salman’s hawkish remarks in a televised interview final week. The younger Saudi prince had dominated out any dialogue with Iran and pledged to guard his kingdom from what he referred to as Tehran’s efforts to dominate the Muslim world.
“We know that we are a main goal for the Iranian regime… We will not wait until the battle becomes in Saudi Arabia but we will work to have the battle in Iran rather than in Saudi Arabia,” the Saudi minister had introduced.
On May three, Iran’s Foreign Ministry denounced the hostile feedback by the Saudi prince as an indication of flawed understanding of the regional state of affairs, lack of political knowledge, and a “strategic mistake” in pursuing the coverage of spreading terrorism.
“Such comments are clear evidence that the Saudis promote terrorism and pursue provocative and destructive policies regarding the region and Iran affairs,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi mentioned.
