A senior Revolutionary Guards commander said on Friday that Iran would respond from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean against any U.S. plots, the state news agency IRNA reported, amid heightened tensions after attacks on Saudi oil infrastructure.

“If the Americans think of any plots, the Iranian nation will respond from the Mediterranean, to the Red Sea and to the Indian Ocean,” said General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, a senior adviser to Iran’s supreme leader, according to IRNA.

Iran denies involvement in the Saudi attacks, which Tehran says were carried out by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group that has claimed responsibility for them.
