“Today, the fingers of the Armed Forces are on the trigger and the Bajij (volunteer) forces, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), the Army and the Law Enforcement forces are now enjoying the highest level of might and readiness,” Pourdastan said, addressing people in the Northern province of Mazandaran on Friday evening.
Stressing that the Armed Forces monitor all threats and are prepared to give a crushing response to any possible aggression, he said, “The Armed Forces, which enjoy a huge capacity and are equipped with all state-of-the-art weapons of the world, are ready to defend the country and they do not allow the slightest harm to the country.”
In relevant remarks in November, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned Iran’s enemies to avoid even thinking of any aggressive move against the country, stressing that the Iranian Armed Forces are ready to give such a crushing response to any threat that aggressors will never forget.
Addressing 50,000 Basij (volunteer force) commanders in Tehran, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the preparedness of Iran’s military forces, and said, “The response of the Iranian nation to any foreign aggression will be regrettable for the enemy.”
The Supreme Leader underlined that the increasing threats by the enemy show that the US-led western sanctions have not been effective and they have understood it themselves.
Addressing the arrogant powers, Ayatollah Khamenei said, “Instead of threatening other countries, go and deal with your wretched economic conditions and think of you debts.”
The Supreme Leader underlined that the Zionist regime has been imposed on the region, “Anything that is gained with force will not last long and this regime will not last either.”
Also in December, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined that Iran will give a crushing response to any possible aggressor.
Major General Jafari deplored the US repeated rhetoric of “military option against Iran is on the table, as “ludicrous” and said, “Repetition of such an absurd sentence by the officials of the US and the fake and evil Zionist regime (of Israel) sounds funny to the Iranian nation.”
The IRGC commander went on to say that the US or Israeli officials are totally incapable of taking any military action against Iran, but at the same time affirmed that any “stupid measure” by the enemies would compel Iran to consider the options it has on the table.
“Lots of options are on the table for Iran, and they (enemies) will receive crushing responses, one of which would be elimination of the Zionist regime,” he warned.
