Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri says the Islamic Republic will give a devastating response to enemies in due time.
General Baqeri said over the past few days, the enemies triggered some developments in the region against Iran without receiving an appropriate response.
“But this does not mean we will remain silent or surrender to the violence. We will give a crushing response to the enemies in due time,” he said, apparently referring to a recent Israeli airstrike on a Syrian airbase which killed several Iranian advisors.
He expressed satisfaction with the current preparedness of Iranian armed forces to defend the country’s borders.
“A review of our defence capabilities has led the enemies to this conclusion that any violence against our soil and national interests will cost them highly and they will achieve nothing but casualties and damages,” he said.
Elsewhere in his remarks, General Baqeri said every now and then some naïve politicians in some states rise to power, level accusations against and order their armies to wage a war on Iran.
“This comes as top commanders of the very violent countries like the US warn the politicians against waging any war against Iran. They advise the politicians to resort to political solutions when it comes to dealing with Iranians,” he added.
He pointed out that the US, Saudi Arabia and the Zionist regime are run by naïve politicians who raise absurd claims about Iran.
“But when it comes to taking practical steps, the same politicians come to this sense that Iran’s defence capability and power is inviolable,” he added.
General Baqeri concluded that the Islamic Republic will not sit idle if the enemies violate its national interests.
