Iran military might aimed at countering great enemy: Cmdr.

An Iranian long-range surface-to-sea Ghader (Capable) missile is launched during the Velayat-90 naval drills near the Strait of Hormuz, southern Iran, January 2012.

Iran is fully prepared to tackle any potential security challenge as the country’s defense capabilities have been designed to counter the most formidable military threat against the country, a senior Iranian commander says.

“The power and defense capability of the Islamic Republic of Iran have been designed and prepared for the great enemy and well beyond the level of regular countries,” Deputy Chairman of the Iranian Armed Forces Chief of Staff Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri said in a Monday statement.

Jazayeri pointed to the strategy of the global hegemonic powers, particularly the US, to prevent the formation of sovereign states and independent governments in Western Asia and noted that the ongoing crises in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are in line with that strategy.

The Iranian commander described the Takfiri current, which is operating under the names of the ISIL, Taliban, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, etc., as the manifest example of the enemies’ tools used to sow discord among the Islamic societies.

In recent years, Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.

The Islamic Republic has repeatedly said its military might is based on deterrence.
