IRGC navy commander underlines Iran’s upper hand in region

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said enemies are afraid of attacking Iran because the country has the initiative and the upper hand in the region now.

“All attempts by the arrogant powers are aimed at creating insecurity in Iran and the region, but they have gained opposite results as Iran has the initiative, while they (the enemies) are now in a passive stance,” Fadavi said, addressing a gathering in Tehran on Thursday.

He underlined that any attack against Iran will cost dearly and will inflict heavy losses on the enemies. “Hence, they don’t dare to give a dirty look to Iran because they are informed of Iran’s power and know that Iran’s deterrence power is on the increase each day.”

In relevant remarks in March, Fadavi underlined that the enemies would never dare to attack Iran because they are afraid of the Iranian Armed Forces’ deterrent power.

“Iran’s power of deterrence is preventing the enemies from attacking the country,” Rear Admiral Fadavi said, addressing a ceremony in the city of Mashhad, Northeastern Iran.

He noted that the enemies have always been trying to attack Iran, but the Islamic Republic’s power of deterrence has prevented them from achieving their goals.

“The Americans and our enemies cannot stand up against the Islamic system’s deterrence power no matter how hard they try …,” Rear Admiral Fadavi added.

Also in March, IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Iran is unmoved by enemies’ war rhetoric due to its astonishing deterrent power, and specially because it has foreseen proper response for all possible scenarios.

He referred to Iran’s deterrence power and defensive capabilities to confront enemies’ threats, and said, “We have grown so much powerful that we don’t feel concerned about the enemy’s unwise attitude. We can go past any enemy scenario, and this has been proved in our contemporary history.”

Stressing that Iran will defuse any enemy plots and scenarios, whether military threats or sanctions, Jafari said, “The US should find a way to survive and continue its endangered life, but we are surprised at the enemy’s insistence on costly and useless scenarios.”

He underscored that Iran’s strategies are strong and decisive.

“The country has blocked enemies’ path to the materialization of its cruel plots,” he said, adding that Iran now has a wide array of options and is capable of using these different options more than ever.
