Acting commander of the IRGC Ground Force Operations Division, Morteza Mirian, announced that according to orders from IRGC Ground Force Commander Pakpour, all acquisitions from abroad have ceased in order to strengthen and support national production, and that domestic needs are now being met by local production. Referring to what he called the IRGC’s superiority in the struggle against the enemy, he said that “Our enemies are equipped with non-conventional weapons that have led them to brag about their capabilities, but it is impossible to overcome the will of nations by force of arms. In the near future, we will be witnessing the transfer of arms and equipment to forces that the enemy cannot even envisage. Over three thousand ships and boats are plying the waters, both fishing and merchant vessels, and they regularly pass near US battleships, begging the question how the US wants to fight us in such a location? They only have to touch their weapons to see who will regret it. As the Supreme Leader has commanded, at every level we can threaten with reciprocal actions and make the aggressors regret their deeds. Obtaining nuclear weapons is contrary to religious law in our view. The Basij forces are our nuclear weapon. The power of Basij is infinite and deadly, and the enemy cannot even imagine it. The Basij has the ability to fire from point zero on the border, right at the heart of the aggressive country.
