The commander of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami says any country that launches even a limited attack on Iran will turn its land into the main battlefield.
General Salami said Iran will never allow any aggression to be driven onto its soil. The IRGC chief said the response to any limited attack will not be limited and those behind any aggression will be punished severely.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of an exhibition of captured drones in Tehran, he stressed that the Islamic Republic’s capacities are hidden and Tehran has revealed only a small part of its power.
General Salami urged the enemies of Iran to study the history of their failure in dealing with the Iranian nation so they can avoid further miscalculations.
“We hit. Anyone who encroaches on our borders will receive a harsh response. This is obvious, and we are saying it openly. They must know we will do what we are saying. We can take responsibility for what we do,” underlined Salami.
The top commander added that Iran’s defence capabilities are not like in the past and they can crush any enemies.
Earlier, Iranian Army Chief Abdolrahim Mousavi told a televised interview that Iran has recently received a message from Americans, in which they asked Iran to let them carry out a limited attack to save face.
The Americans asked Iran not to retaliate so that the clash would get over, Mousavi said.
However, he added, Iran told the US if they attack one target in Iran, the Islamic Republic will hit ten in response.
