Iran’s intelligence minister warned Saudi Arabia on Wednesday that Tehran cannot guarantee the continuation of its strategic patience.
According to the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Esmail Khatib, “Until now, Iran has exercised strategic patience with firm rationality, but it cannot guarantee that it will not run out if hostilities continue.”
It further stated that glass palaces will fall and these countries won’t have any more stability if Iran decides to retaliate and punish.
Iran has accused foreign foes of inciting unrest since Iranian Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini passed away in police prison in September following her arrest for allegedly disobeying the Islamic Republic’s severe dress code enforced on women.
The head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Hossein Salami issued a warning to Saudi Arabia last month to regulate its media outlets.
According to Iranian state media, Salami said, “I am warning the Saudi ruling family… Watch your behaviour and control these media … otherwise, you will pay the price. This is our last warning because you are interfering in our state matters through these media…”
After the Wall Street Journal reported that Riyadh had provided data with the United States warning of an impending Iranian strike on targets in the kingdom, Iran last week denied that it constituted a threat to Saudi Arabia.
