Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri says if Syria is attacked, it will hit the interests of the US and its allies.
Jazayeri said on Sunday, “Those countries, which as US allies are proving militants with money, [military] equipment and bases, are within Syria’s reach and predictions indicate that nothing can stop a Syrian counterattack”.
He added that Syria is well aware of enemy actions and in the event of any US military action against the country it “will respond to fire with fire and [military] offensive with offensive.”
The senior Iranian commander also condemned US threats of a military attack despite the massive anti-war front in the world.
Jazayeri stated that the international community gives Syria the right to deliver a crushing response to enemies and invaders in its own defense.
