TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi underlined the high preparedness of the Islamic Republic’s Armed Forces, saying that Iran’s defensive capabilities and readiness have pushed the enemy to resort to soft war.
“The enemy which couldn’t wage a hot war against the Iranian nation grew disappointed after it found that the deployment (of its forces) around the Islamic Republic has proved ineffective, and it has now focused on the cultural front,” Naqdi said, addressing a forum in Tehran on Monday.
“Since 7 years ago, they have focused mainly on the soft war and the cultural front,” he added.
Naqdi further pointed to the wave of psychological propaganda against the Islamic Republic as part of the same soft war efforts made by the enemies, saying over 160 Persian-language satellite channels are now working outside Iran to affect and change the thoughts and system of values of the Iranian youth and families.
A deputy chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces had also warned in early January that enemies have devised different plots to implement various soft war scenarios, and called for taking the necessary precautionary measures by Iranian officials.
“It is necessary to devise the needed retaliatory measures in proportion with the enemy’s determination, which is unfortunately growing more serious every day, and to implement them with firmness and confidence,” Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces for Cultural Affairs and Defense Publicity Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri said, addressing a group of Armed Forces’ cultural officials.
He underlined that the Armed Forces as flag-bearers of fight against enemies’ soft war scenarios can make the society active and remove the existing concerns in this regard by activating potentials and creating effective and timely capacities.
In October, General Jazzayeri announced establishment of soft war headquarters across the country.
“We are launching soft war headquarters in all provinces throughout the country,” Brigadier General Jazzayeri said, adding, “Intelligent confrontation with the enemy is one of the main objectives of this move.”
He pointed to soft war as one of the most important topics of the day, and said, “Different dimensions of soft war should be identified by the (domestic) media followed by tough action to repel and defuse such invasions.”
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has also on many occasions warned against enemies’ soft-war plots against Iran’s resolve towards progress.
In November 2009, he underlined the necessity for proper measures to repel enemy’s soft war against Iran.
“Today, the main priority of the country is to confront (enemy’s) soft warfare which is aimed at creating doubt, discord and pessimism among the masses of the people,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing a large and fervent congregation of Basij forces at the time.
