FNA- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi underlined Iran’s deterrence power, saying that the enemies fear military confrontation against the country.
“We have reached the deterrence phase. If the enemy wants to adopt a measure, the losses will be more than benefits. Today, they don’t dare to fire even a bullet at us,” Rear Admiral Fadavi said, addressing a ceremony in the Southern city of Bushehr on Sunday.
He stressed Iran’s superiority in the Persian Gulf, and said that the US vessels and marines obey the Iranian naval forces’ rule and orders in the region.
In relevant remarks in March, Rear Admiral Fadavi said that the US had given up the military option against Iran for the heavy costs and little gains of war against a highly-deterrent country.
“The naval capacities can make our biggest enemies regret bullying,” Rear Admiral Fadavi said, addressing a joint forum of the Army Navy and IRGC Navy in the Southern city of Bandar Abbas.
“Today, the Americans understand well that the Army Navy and IRGC Navy are a united hand in the sea which enjoys much more power than the Americans,” he added.
Rear Admiral Fadavi underlined that the US has come to the conclusion that “the losses and harms of aggression against the Islamic Republic of Iran will be way bigger than its gains”.
Also in the same month, Iranian Navy Commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi underscored that the naval forces of Iran’s army and IRGC were prepared to give a crushing response to enemies’ aggression anywhere in international waters.
“The enemies should know that the Navy and the IRGC Navy, which act under a single command, are not afraid of threats and stand against any bullying anywhere in the world waters forcefully,” Rear Admiral Khanzadi said.
He also lauded IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani for his fight against the terrorist groups and for establishing unity among the revolutionary and resistance groups, and said, “We should also pursue formation of an Islamic resistance front in the sea and prove, through planning, sympathy and unity between the Navy and the IRGC Navy, that the great sea is no place for enemy aggression.”
