Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard further said Iran’s deterrence power holds the enemy back.
“If the enemy has stopped at a distance 200 miles from the Strait of Hormuz, it is due to our deterrence capability. Iran’s combat preparedness should not be put to the test, and their first mistake will be their last one,” said General Sahabifard, who is the commander of the Air Defence Force of the Iranian Army.
“The enemy is rattling sabres through its military presence in the Persian Gulf and exerting maximum pressure, and wants to impose its sinister intentions on the steely resolve of the Iranian nation,” he noted.
“On the one hand, the enemy bangs the drum of war, and on the other, it ratchets up sanctions. Still, the enemy offers to hold talks. This shows the enemy is not reliable,” he said.
He said the US and its cronies in the region should know that they are no able to confront Iran as the Islamic Republic is in possession of “unique secret weapons.”
