The General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces in a statement on Wednesday underlined that Iran’s military deterrence power which was resulted from the Islamic revolution changed the power equations in the region against the Israeli regime.
“One of the biggest achievements of the Islamic Revolution is consolidation of the defensive deterrence power (of Iran) which has managed to blind the greedy looks of the aliens to the country’s territories,” said the statement which has been issued on the occasion of the 36th anniversary of the victory of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution.
It underlined that the Islamic Republic by its resistance against the hegemonic powers and efforts to establish global peace and justice plays a pioneering role in campaign against the arrogant powers and its influential role in the region and the world has even been acknowledged by the western officials and bodies.
“By supporting the resistance front and confronting the arrogant system, the Islamic Revolution has made fundamental developments and change in the regional (power) structure possible,” the statement added.
Led by the Founder of the Revolution, Imam Khomeini, Iranians confronted the forces of US-proxy Mohammad-Reza Pahlavi in late 1977 to end his oppressive, cruel and autocratic rule over the country.
By December 1978, millions of Iranians would take to the streets in protest against the policies of the Shah on a regular basis.
Grand Ayatollah Rouhollah Khomeini returned from exile to Iran to be received by millions of cheering crowds after the departure of the Shah in mid-January 1979. Two weeks later, the country saw the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The final collapse of the Shah’s regime came on February 11 when the military renounced its loyalty to the Shah and joined the revolutionary forces.
