Tensions have flared in the volatile region, with US diplomats warning that airliners flying over the Persian Gulf risk “mis-identification” and nonessential diplomatic staffers acting upon orders to leave the US Embassy in Baghdad.

Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander Gen. Hossein Salami taunted Donald Trump’s administration with a 9/11 allusion on Saturday, in an painful reference to the attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001 against the backdrop of spiraling tensions between Iran and the United States.

"The [US political] system has an apparently huge body, but suffers from osteoporosis," the high-ranking Iranian official told Fars news agency.

"In fact, the US is like a World Trade building that collapses with a sudden hit," he added.

As Iran’s IRGC Commander Salami claimed, the American system "has cracked and lost its strength," Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said his country is “not seeking war,” according to state-run Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
