IRGC Deputy Commander: Iran’s Deterrence Power Prevents Enemies’ Aggression
“Iran’s military deterrence power is unique and this deterrence power caused the aggressors to forget about any military attack against Iran,” General Sanayee Raad said, addressing a ceremony in the Northeastern province of Zanjan on Sunday evening.
He noted that the US was mulling military aggression against Iran in 2001 and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan showed this intention, and said the US experienced such a defeat in these countries as well as in the proxy war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon that it forgot any military war against Iran.
In relevant remarks in December, Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined his country’s high deterrence power, adding that it prevents enemies from even thinking about military aggression against Tehran.
“The Armed Forces’ deterrence power can respond to enemies’ plans and plots and thanks God, today this deterrence exists at a proper and desirable level and therefore, the enemy has concluded that launching an attack against Iran is not possible,” General Baqeri said, addressing the Iranian army commanders in Tehran.
“They (the enemies) know that they will be harmed a lot by launching war against the Islamic Iran,” he added.
General Baqeri, meantime, underscored the necessity for the Iranian Armed Forces to keep vigilant given the sensitive conditions in the region.
