IRGC Commander: Israel will be annihilated in war with Iran
A high-ranking Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) commander says the Israeli regime is well aware that initiating a confrontation with Iran will only hasten its annihilation
Speaking at a ceremony on Thursday, Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the IRGC’s Aerospace Division, hailed the growth in Iran’s military capabilities, which he said had prompted the enemies to make attempts at limiting the country’s defense power.
“That the enemies say ‘let’s negotiate missiles,” or that the Islamic Republic’s drones have turned into a thorn in the enemies’ side, and they (the enemies) say ‘we have to put restrictions on them (missiles),’ is indicative of our power,” Hajizadeh said.
“Today, the security of the country is exemplary and we do not need to talk about our [military] capabilities, [even though] the enemies say ‘let’s talk about missiles today’ more than enough,” Hajizadeh said.
Hajizadeh said Iran’s enemies have tried in vain for many years to impose arms embargoes on the Islamic Republic in order to prevent the Iranian military from advancing.
Throughout the years, Iran has managed to make substantial progress in its military sector. The Islamic Republic has succeeded in domestically producing missiles, drones, aircraft, tanks, submarines, and other military hardware.
The Islamic Republic has, on countless occasions, reassured other countries, especially the neighboring ones, that its military power is merely intended for defensive purposes and does not pose any threat to them.
Nevertheless, the United States and its allies have tried to coerce Tehran into negotiations with the aim of restricting the country’s capabilities, while at the same time selling billions of dollars worth of weapons and military hardware to some other regional countries.
Hajizadeh added that although Iran has no shortcoming in the missile field, the country still faces a number of problems in other areas, including the economy.
“Today, with God’s grace, we have reached good points in the field of defense, military and security, and under such security, we must get actively involved in other areas and resolve problems one after another,” the general added.
