Iran Optimizing Weapons to Fight against Takfiri Terrorists
Senior Iranian army commanders announced reinvigoration of the country’s forces with different stat-or-the-art weapons to fight against the Takfiri terrorists who are serving proxy wars in the region.
The Takfiri terrorists are today fighting proxy wars and the Islamic Republic of Iran’s Army is optimizing its weapons to confront them, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told reporters in the Central city of Isfahan on Wednesday.
He said that one of the weapons which can be effective against enemy attacks is well armed and equipped helicopters, adding that today several Iranian logistical and transportation helicopters were armed with the hi-tech weapons.
These helicopters can empower the Iranian forces “in proxy wars against enemy positions”, Pourdastan said.
In relevant remarks last month, 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.
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 would help them as much as it can.
Also in September, 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.
