IRGC General: Iran’s military power rising

Tasnim – Iran continues to boost its military power, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said.

In an interview with Tasnim in the western city of Sanandaj, Rear Admiral Fadavi underlined that Iran’s military power continues to grow.

He also noted that the IRGC has been doing its utmost to fulfill its duties and contribute to the promotion of Iran’s power and capabilities.

The commander then emphasized that full security prevails along the entire Iranian borders, noting that even the US admits that Iran enjoys the current level of security.

Last year, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called for efforts to maintain and boost Iran’s defense capabilities, hitting back at the enemies for disputing the country’s missile program.

“Without a moment of hesitation, the country must move to acquire whatever is necessary for defense, even if the whole world is opposed to it,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

In November 2018, the Leader said that Iran’s enhanced military preparedness would frighten the foes and be deterrent against the enemies, underlining, “The Islamic Republic is not intending to begin a war against anyone, but you (the Iranian military forces) should boost your capabilities in such a way that not only the enemy would be fearful and afraid of attacking Iran, but also thanks to the solidarity, might, and effective presence of the Armed Forces, the specter of threats against the Iranian nation would be swept away.”
