Iran’s Army Commander Major General Ataollah Salehi reiterated the country’s armed forces’ high preparedness to defend the country against possible hostile moves.
Addressing a group of Iranian Air Force cadets on Monday, Salehi pointed to the ongoing developments in the Middle East, and also anti-Iran rhetoric by “bullying countries”, and said the army is well prepared to defend the country.
“The mighty Army of the Islamic Iran has the ability and power to show prompt response to any kind of unwise movement in the region, especially against our dear country: Iran,” Salehi underscored.
In similar remarks earlier this month, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said that his forces, who have advanced technologies in their possession, are prepared to counter any foreign threat.
“Today, the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps has immense power with reliance on people and faith (in God), and by possessing very advanced technologies, it is ready to counter any foreign threat,” the top general said in a cultural conference held in the northeastern city of Mashhad.
He asserted that “defending the Islamic Revolution” is the main mission of IRGC.
