IRGC Commander: Iran Never Allows US Visit to Military Sites
“Both the great Iranian nation and the US and the world should know that if there is only one demand in the whole world which will be rejected and if there is only one wish that will be taken to the grave, it is the Americans’ demand to visit our military centers,” General Salami said in an interview with the state TV on Saturday night.
Stressing that the gates of Iran’s bases are open only to the Iranian nation, he said, “The Americans should not allow themselves at all to speak about Iran and if they want to visit a base they should go to the the military sites in the US.”
Meantime, Salami underscored Iran’s high defense and military power, and said Tehran has produced different missiles in such large numbers that it has problems for stockpiling them.
In relevant remarks last Monday, Commander of the IRGC Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh underlined that Iran will not permit the western states, including the US, to visit the country’s military sites.
“The response is clear. We will not give them such a permission,” General Hajizadeh told reporters in Tehran when asked about media reports that US President Donald Trump was calling for inspections of Iran’s military sites.
He, meantime, underscored Iran’s high missile power, and said a little part of this power was displayed in the country’s recent missile strikes against the ISIL in Syria.
“Both the Zionists and the reactionary regional regimes understood that we have certain redlines and will resist to safeguard the revolution and will not withdraw,” General Hajizadeh said.
The IRGC launched 6 missile strikes at ISIL centers in Syria’s Deir Ezzur in retaliation for the June 7 twin terrorist attacks in Tehran, it said in a statement issued on June 18, adding that the mid-range ballistic missiles were fired from bases in Western Iran and flew through Iraq’s airspace before hitting the targets in Syria.
