‘Iran’s armed forces will give a crushing response to any threat’: Major General Salehi
The top commander of the Iranian Army, Major General Attaollah Salehi, has emphasized that Iran’s armed forces are very serious and will give a crushing response to any threat against the country.
Major General Salehi, speaking on Thursday to reporters and journalists during a visit to “Shalamcheh” in south western Iran, on the border with Iraq, emphasized that the enemies of Iran do not have the power or the means to destroy Iran, because if they had such ability, they would have done it by now.
Major General Salehi said our enemies are well aware of the power and capabilities of Iran’s armed forces, and this is why they have been cautious in their approach towards Iran.
He emphasized that terrorism takes many forms in the Middle East, including ISIL, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, Pirates operating off the coast of Somalia, and al-Nusra Front, and we need to keep a close eye on these terrorist groups.
