Any Threat against Iran to Draw Army’s Prompt, Crushing Action: Commander

Commander of Iran’s Army Ground Force gave an assurance that his forces will nip any threat against the country’s borders in the bud.

Speaking to reporters in the northern city of Gonbad-e Kavus on Thursday, Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan underlined that Iran develops proportional defensive preparedness to deal with any types of threat, either at or outside the borders.

He emphasized that the military forces’ level of readiness is so high that they will never face a surprise attack.

If anyone poses a threat to Iran, the Army will immediately knock them out, he added.

Earlier in 2015, Iran’s Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi highlighted the Armed Forces’ high preparedness to defend the country against any possible hostile moves.

“The mighty army of the Islamic Iran enjoys the ability and power to show prompt response to any kind of unwise movement in the region, especially against our dear country of Iran,” Salehi underscored.

Iran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
