Commander Stresses Iran's Military Progress

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian commander said that Iran's military is making continued progress with daily innovations in different fields.



"Iranian military progresses have reached the point that we are witnessing innovations, developments and inventions in the equipments sector on a daily basis," Lieutenant Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) General Seyed Mohammad Hejazi told reporters Saturday night in Iran's northern city of Amol.

The General further stressed preparedness of the Iranian military forces to defend the country and its borders.

Referring to Israel's failure in the 22-day-long war against the defenseless people of Gaza, he added, "The equipments employed by the Zionist regime (of Israel) in this unequal war were today's most advanced weapons in the world."

Noting the Israelis' premeditated plan, the commander assessed that the Zionist regime did not expect Gazans would continued resistance to the end.

Israeli forces failed to attain their military objectives after 22 days of attacks on Gaza's civilians, houses, mosques and schools in which 1400 people died and over 5500 others wounded, most of them women and children.

"The Islamic Resistance's tactics were not known to them (Israelis)," he added, explaining the reason underlying the Israeli army's failure in attaining its goals through the onslaught against Gaza.
