“Over 90% of the IRGC’s possibilities in Tehran have been allocated to soft warfare mechanisms,” Former Commander of Mohammad Rasoul Allah Corp General Hossein Hamedani said.
Speaking at a ceremony to appreciate Hamedani’s efforts and introduce the new commander of Mohammad Rasoul Allah Corp, Hamedani underlined the IRGC’s capability to repel all types of threats against the country.
Meantime, New Commander of Mohammad Rasoul Allah Corp General Seyed Mohsen Kazemeini described soft war as the main threat to the country, and stressed that Iran should enjoy a high level of soft power to defuse enemies’ soft threats.
The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyed Ali Khamenei had also on many occasions warned about the enemies’ soft-war plots to undermine Iran’s resolve towards progress.
In November 2009, he underlined the necessity for proper measures to repel enemy’s soft war against Iran.
“Today, the main priority of the country is to confront (enemy’s) soft warfare which is aimed at creating doubt, discord and pessimism among the masses of the people,” The Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyed Ali Khamenei said, addressing a large and fervent congregation of Basij (volunteer) forces at the time.
