Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei awarded the ‘Order of Fat’h’ medal to the commanders who captured U.S. sailors.
According to Iran’s English-language Press TV, Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, commander of the IRGC Navy, along with four other commanders “for arresting the trespassing US sailors” received the Fat’h (Victory) medal.
His office tweeted the announcement of the awards in both English and French along with a photo of Khamenei with the military commanders, as he labeled the Americans “intruding U.S. marines,” erroneously describing them as “marines.”
