Iran immune to military threats: Commander

Tasnim – The high level of military readiness in Iran and the capabilities of the Armed Forces have made the country immune to any military threat, Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari said.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a military event in Iran’s northeastern city of Bojnourd on Wednesday, General Heidari said the Army forces are “more prepared than ever.”

Thanks to the optimum status of defensive readiness and under the wise guidance of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, the country is not facing any military threats, the commander added.

In comments on Saturday, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri cautioned the enemies of the heavy costs they would have to pay in case of any military action against Iran, saying they won’t be the one deciding when and how to end such a war, which would not remain confined to Iran’s borders.

He also stressed that a military aggression against Iran, however improbable, would not involve boots on the ground, because the enemies know what tough Iranian fighters they are going to be up against.
