The Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the Iranian Armed Forces will be unyielding in their response to any enemy threat.
Major General Mohammad-Ali Jafari on Wednesday pointed to the complete readiness of Iranian Armed Forces to face enemy threats, saying, “In response to any kind of enemy threats, we have envisioned unyielding reactions.”
“The enemies of the Islamic Revolution are in crisis and think that by spreading this crisis to other parts [of the world] they will be able to control the public opinion of their nations, ” the general said.
Jafari stated that the threadbare, outdated and tried scenarios that enemies use against the Iranian nation will have no result but strengthening the pillars of the Islamic Revolution.
“We are determined to use all capacities to safeguard the achievements of the [Islamic] establishment and revolution like before, and on this path, we are moving towards brighter horizons,” Jafari stated.
Israel has frequently threatened to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities based on the unfounded allegation that Iran’s nuclear energy program has been diverted towards military purposes.
Iran rejects the allegation, arguing that as a committed signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
Iranian officials have also vowed a crushing response to any military strike against the country, warning that any such measure could result in a war that would spread beyond the Middle East.
