Defense Minister warns of Iran’s crushing response to any aggression

Tasnim – Iran’s Defense Minister warned the enemies that any act of aggression against the country will draw a crushing response from the Iranian Armed Forces.

In comments at a school near Iran’s southeastern city of Chabahar on Saturday, Brigadier General Amir Hatami cautioned the enemies that any action against the Iranian nation’s security or its goals will spark a “crushing response” from the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces.

He also highlighted the futility and failure of the US’ policy of maximum pressure on Iran, saying, “The grown, insightful and resisting nation of Islamic Iran has never given in and will never give in to the excessive demands of the front of arrogance, and we will definitely overcome these problems successfully and proudly.”

Iranian military and political officials have repeatedly warned the enemies of the dire consequences of a military strike.

In comments in April 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US is aware of the crushing response it will have to face in case of taking military action against Iran.

The era of hit and run is now over, and the US knows that if it gets entangled in military action against Iran, it will receive much harsher blows, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.

The US is seeking a way to evade the costs of standing against Iran and place them on regional countries, the Leader said, reminding certain regional countries that if they confront Iran, “they will definitely suffer blows and defeat”.
