Commander: IRGC Fully Ready to Confront Proxy Wars
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underscored the IRGC forces’ full preparedness to fight against the western and certain regional states’ proxy wars.
“The IRGC has come with all its power to confront the proxy wars and opponents of the resistance front and it has (special) plans,” Jafari said in a press conference in Tehran on Tuesday.
He underlined that the countries and groups which are members of the resistance front can ask the Islamic Republic for advisors and experience, adding that Tehran will help them as much as it can.
Also earlier this month, Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami warned that enemies had opted for a war of proxies against Iran after they were discouraged from direct confrontation against the country.
Given the spread of the Islamic Revolution’s thoughts in the Muslim world, “today, our enemies are fighting against us by proxy wars in different fronts but we will continue the path of progress and growth”, Salami told reporters in Tehran.
He underlined that the only way to turn Iran into an international power was resistance against the hegemonic powers and those who sought to spread their influence in other countries.
In relevant remarks in May, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan blasted the US for hiring the ISIL terrorist group to fight proxy wars against the regional states.
“The crimes committed by the ISIL terrorist grouplet and whatever created under the name of Takfiri groups in the region are proxy acts by the US,” Dehqan said.
Warning that the US and the Zionist regime were always after striking Islam, he said, “Unfortunately, certain Islamic countries have been fooled by the enemies and are acting in compliance with the plots hatched by the US and the Quds Occupying Regime.”
Dehqan also warned that the US was attempting to create rift among Muslims and coax them into fighting against each other with the help of the terrorist groups, including the ISIL.
