A high-ranking Iranian commander has dismissed the US military threats against the Islamic Republic, stressing that Washington has never had the courage to launch an attack against Iran.
According to Press TV, Commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh told a group of Iranian university students in Tehran on Monday, “The Iranian nation and Armed Forces are ready to take actions against the United States and enemies that have a greedy eye on the country.”
He added that the United States has on occasions revealed its true colors to the Iranian nation, and has displayed aggression every time Iran has relied on it.
Hajizadeh further noted that the Iranian government and nation have no faith in the United States and its allies, stating that Washington has not honored its commitments to Iran and many world countries.
The senior IRGC commander pointed out, “The US has an aggressive nature, which has expressed several times in its behavior towards Iran. Every time we wanted to come close to them (Americans), they assailed us with an action.”
