Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said enemies do not dare to attack Iran because they are well aware of the Iranian Armed Forces’ preparedness, although he said the enemies will grow fool enough to launch war on Iran some day.
“We have no doubt that one day we will be in war with the sworn enemies of the Islamic Revolution in the region, of course, we will not be the initiator of that war. This battle will take place and hence we should be fully prepared for that day,” General Jafari said during a visit to Basij (volunteer) battalions in Isfahan province on Saturday.
The IRGC commander told the Ashura, Beitol Moqaddas, Imam Ali (AS) and Imam Hossein (AS) battalions of Basij present in the gathering that “today, Basiji forces are fully prepared in different fields of threat and this readiness is known to the enemies and they are aware of it more than anyone else”.
“The full-fledged preparedness of the Basij forces is to such an extent that enemies do not even dare to give a dirty look to Iran.”
General Jafari noted that the enemies’ threats against Iran are not merely military and, on the same basis, Basiji forces are duty-bound to gain complete preparedness in different arenas.
In similar remarks Last week, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said preparedness, might and power of his forces has intimidated Iran’s enemies so deeply that they do not dare to even think of adopting hostile policies against the country.
Speaking during a visit to the different parts of the specialized logistics center of the IRGC Navy in the Southern province of Fars on Saturday, Fadavi said as a result of the struggles and round-the-clock efforts made by the IRGC naval forces, “the Islamic Republic of Iran’s naval defense structure has grown so powerful that it has discouraged the enemy from even thinking about hegemony or bullying against Iran in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz region”.
He said that the moves made by the IRGC Navy, which started in the Iraqi-imposed war (1980-1988), the war of oil tankers in the Persian Gulf and the direct confrontation with the US Navy and continued with assymetric tactics in recent years, have contributed much to Iran’s deterrence power in recent years and sow fear in the heart of the enemies.
