Senior commander: Iran to bury aggressors

TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami played down the trans-regional enemies’ war rhetoric against Iran, and underlined that the Iranian Armed Forces will bury the aggressors in graves they have never imagined.

“The Iranian nation belongs to a land every span of which is impenetrable and invincible and the enemies aren’t able to impose an aggression against the Iranian nation,” Salami said, addressing a forum in Sardasht city, Northwestern Iran, on Wednesday.

“The aggressors should know that the Iranian nation will bury them in a cemetery that they have never seen (if they dare to attack Iran),” he added.

The US and its close ally Israel accuse Iran of seeking a nuclear weapon, while they have never presented any corroborative document to substantiate their allegations. Both Washington and Tel Aviv possess advanced weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear warheads.

Iran vehemently denies the charges, insisting that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only. Tehran stresses that the country has always pursued a civilian path to provide power to the growing number of Iranian population, whose fossil fuel would eventually run dry.

The Zionist regime has recently intensified its war rhetoric against Tehran, warning that it plans to hit Iranian nuclear facilities.

Iran has, in return, warned that it would target Israel and its worldwide interests in case it comes under attack by the Tel Aviv.

The United States has also always stressed that military action is a main option for the White House to deter Iran’s progress in the field of nuclear technology.

In response, Iran has warned it would hit the US, Israel and their worldwide interests and close the strategic Strait of Hormuz if it became the target of a military attack over its nuclear program.

Strait of Hormuz, the entrance to the strategic Persian Gulf waterway, is a major oil shipping route.
