The head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has issued a warning to Saudi Arabia about the country’s Persian-language media coverage of protests in Iran

IRGC commander Hossein Salami said, “I have a recommendation to Saudi Arabia, which is trying to trick our youth with the support of some media outlets. I am warning the Saudi regime: Be careful of your behavior and control these outlets or the smoke will blow in your face.” He continued, “We give you the final word because you are interfering in our internal affairs with these media. We told you, be careful.”
