TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Wherever needed, Iran is prepared to adopt measures against the Zionist regime of Israel, a senior Iranian military official said Sunday.
“Iran and the resistance (movement) will take effective action against Zionists wherever necessary,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri told reporters on Sunday.
He made the remark in response to a question regarding Zionist media reports about presence of Iranian forces near the occupying regime’s borders.
“In order to confront the Zionist regime, there is no need for Iranian military forces to be deployed to the borders of the occupied Palestine,” Jazayeri said, adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran and the resistance bloc have the potential to effectively respond if the Zionists make any wrong move.
A number of Zionist media outlets have recently carried reports about photos purportedly showing IRGC forces along the border between Lebanon and occupied Palestine.
The Times of Israel claimed the pictures were taken in the Beqaa and Baalbek regions of southern Lebanon late last year.
