In a statement on Tuesday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces General Baqeri warned the US that any threats at any level against the Iranian nation will face a fierce response by the country’s armed forces.
“We must thank God that our enemies are fools,” he said, adding that it is an illusion of the president of the United States, as the most hated person in the world, to create a rift between Iranians through economic pressures.
He also stressed that the Iranian people have always shown they are able to foil enemy plots, especially those hatched by the criminal US government, the fake Zionist regime and their mercenaries in the region and in the world, by maintaining their unity and solidarity.
“The enemies of Iran, in particular the United States, whose bases and interests are within reach of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s defence forces, would better not play with the lion’s tail as Iran’s president said, because they will receive a solid, unthinkable, regrettable response on a very large scale in the region and in the world,” underscored General Baqeri.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always been a guarantor of peace and stability in the region and through appropriate, friendly and brotherly relations with neighbouring countries, it has the ability to use its defence power to help establish and maintain peace and repel any form of aggression in the region.”
“Iran as the dominant power in the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz has always guaranteed safety of navigation in this vital waterway and the global economy, and it has the power to take any measure in the region,” he added.
He also stressed that the armed forces are at the peak of their readiness and are confident that they will foil any plot against the Iranian nation, and give the enemies an unforgettable lesson, as they did in the past.
