A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) stressed the Iranian Armed Forces’ full preparedness to defend the country against possible enemy aggressions, and stressed that Iran’s response to any attack will be “unbelievable”.
“The Islamic Republic establishment has acquired such a capability that the aggressors will suffer an unbelievable and crushing defeat in case of any attack or intervention,” Commander of the IRGC Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said on Thursday.
Fadavi emphasized that the enemy seeks to confront with Iran by imposing economic and political sanctions and desecrating Islamic sanctities. It does not dare to have a direct confrontation with Iranian forces.
In relevant remarks last month, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said an enemy invasion of Iran is possible, but such a war would put an end to the life of the Zionist regime of Israel.
“Owing to the (high) speed (of the growth and development) of the Islamic Revolution, this cancerous tumor, Israel, is challenging us to war, but it is not clear when this war would take place,” Jafari said in Tehran in September.
“War may break out, but if Zionists start something, that will be the point of their annihilation and the endpoint of their story,” he added.
Jafari, meantime, underlined that “no one dares to wage an extensive ground assault on Iran”.
The General said if the enemy were wise, there wouldn’t be any problem, “but the problem is that there is no guarantee for this rationality and we should be prepared too.”
Israel and its close ally the United States accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.
Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.
The Zionist regime has recently intensified its war rhetoric against Tehran, warning that it plans to hit Iranian nuclear facilities.
Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.
The United States has also always stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.
In response, Iran has warned it would hit the US, Israel and their worldwide interests and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.
Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.
