Chief of Staff of Iran’s Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri underlined that the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has increased its power and might so much that no enemy is able to defeat it.
“Relying on the eternal divine power and with the support of a strong nation, the IRGC has shown that no power can defeat the dear Revolutionary Guards. Today we have both the power of combat and resistance; meaning that we can attack the centers of threat and resources of the enemy camp when the day comes in any size, and at any scale and any intensity,” General Baqeri said in a message on the occasion of the IRGC Day in Iran on Tuesday.
“The mission fields of the IRGC and the actions of the Revolutionary Guards prove that today the power of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a credited,” he added.
General Baqeri referred to the IRGC’s seizure of a British military vessel which had illegally entered the Iranian waters and downing of an intruder US drone over the country’s territories in the past few years, and said, “The capacity has been developed for destroying the Zionist regime and, with the help of God, removing the fake, child-killer and ominous regime from the political geography of the region.”
His comments came a day after the IRGC Navy unveiled a new missile town containing a big variety of systems and ballistic missiles with state-of-the-art equipment.
The IRGC new missile city was unveiled in a ceremony on Monday in the presence of the IRCG Commander Major General Hossein Salami, IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Alireza Tangsiri and a number of top military commanders.
The missile city is equipped with different systems and cruise and ballistic missiles enjoying different ranges.
The new systems and equipment make IRGC Navy capable of launching pin-point missiles from underground, laying naval mines with various ranges, firing missiles at 360-degree, confronting electronic warfare, and increasing the range and destruction power in operations.
All the mentioned systems have been produced by Iranian experts at defense ministry, knowledge-based companies, and IRGC research centers.
One of the newly unveiled missile systems is capable of changing the target after being launched.
“Today, part of our missile power that gives superiority in the battlefield and has been developed by domestic experts enter the operational section of the IRGC Navy,” Brigadier General Tangsiri said in the ceremony.
“The process of making IRGC Navy stronger will continue,” he said, warning enemies that they will receive a “deadly blow” in case of any aggression against Iran.
Major General Salami also noted in the ceremony that four decades of enemies’ attacks against Iran has only resulted in their defeat and frustration.
“After being defeated in military and proxy wars and cultural aggression, enemies are pursuing other strategies including the imposition of sanctions and waging an economic war,” he said, adding, “IRGC’s empowerment is aimed at promoting the grandeur of the Iranian nation.”
