IRGC spokesman terms US threats against Iran psychological warfare

FNA – Head of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Public Relations Department and Spokesman General Ramezan Sharif dismissed the US military threats against Iran as bluffs and a tool of psychological warfare.

“We have not observed any move by the US at our sea and land borders. People are familiar with the Americans’ statements which are mostly for psychological warfare use and aimed at boosting the morale of their supporters, including the Zionist regime and al-Saud,” General Sharif told FNA on Monday.

He stressed that Iran’s regional and global enemies know that they can’t confront Iran on the military scene. “Thanks God, we have all the necessary possibilities to give a strong and crushing response to any aggressive force against Iran.”

Iran has made major achievements in manufacturing different weapons and military equipment.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei urged the Iranian Armed Forces to further reinvigorate their capabilities and deterrence power.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran does not intend to start a war against anyone but you (Armed Forces) should increase your capabilities to the extent that not only does the enemy fear attacking Iran but also the shadow of war against the Iranian nation will fade away with the help of the Armed Forces’ solidarity, might and effective deployment,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing Navy officials and commanders in Tehran late in November on the occasion of the Navy Day in Iran.

He added that the Armed Forces’ preparedness played as a deterrent power against the enemy threats.
