Iran devises retaliation scenarios
Amid threats of a nuclear attack against Iran, a top official with Iran’s Armed Forces says the country has “retaliation scenarios” against any aggressor.
“The Islamic Republic has prepared retaliation scenarios against aggressions, which will bring regret to the enemy,” the deputy head of Iran’s Armed Forces Headquarters, Brigadier General Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, said Sunday.
He added that Iran’s Armed Forces are always ready to take appropriate defensive measures to counter possible attacks, IRNA reported.
The commander pointed to “successful” military drills held by units from Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz and stressed, “Security of the Persian Gulf region should be provided by regional countries.”
He said that Western powers face problems in their plans and policies, adding, “Our enemies have a combination of their own conflicts and problems.”
Jazayeri reiterated that the IRGC would give a “firm and crushing” response to any aggressor.
He also urged the departure of foreign forces form the Persian Gulf “because we consider them as enemies.”
