An Iranian military commander has highlighted the full preparedness of Iran’s Armed Forces, warning that the Islamic Republic will give a crushing response to any military aggression.
“The Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran will never be caught unawares, and should the enemy want to act on the immature fantasy of aggression, it will face a crushing and lethal response by the Armed forces,” Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan said on Thursday.
“Today, we are facing new threats that are different from [those in] the past in terms of type, shape and size,” based on which Iran’s defense doctrine is defined, said the Iranian commander.
Pourdastan said that Iranian intelligence experts are monitoring the movements of the enemy “at the borders, across the region and beyond the region.”
In recent years, Iran has secured great accomplishments in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly said its military might poses no threat to other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
