Commander Stresses Iran's Strong Deterrent Power

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said Iran is now enjoying the highest level of military deterrence.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a ceremony to supply long-range ground-to-ground missile launchers to the IRGC Aerospace Force on Sunday, Hajizadeh said that the Iranian Armed Forces have elevated their military preparedness to confront potential threats.

"Today, we are experiencing the best condition of military deterrence and no power in the world is capable of confronting and hurting the Islamic Iran," Hajizadeh said.

Earlier today, The Iranian Defense Ministry supplied large numbers of long-range ground-to-ground missile launchers to the IRGC.

The launchers were supplied to the IRGC's Aerospace Force in a special ceremony attended by Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi and Hajizadeh.

Addressing the ceremony, Vahidi underlined the defensive nature of the country's military power, saying that the capability is for crushing possible enemy invasions.

"The Islamic Iran does not want war with anyone and will never initiate war and conflict, yet, it will not allow anyone to make an aggression or take a hostile action and will mightily crush any invading enemy and will make him regretful of his deeds," Vahidi stated.

The Iranian Army has recently test-fired different types of newly-developed missiles and torpedoes and tested a large number of its home-made weapons, tools and equipments, including submarines, military ships, artillery, choppers, aircraft, UAVs and air defense and electronic systems, during massive military drills.

Defense analysts and military observers say that Iran's wargames and its advancements in weapons production have proved as a deterrent factor, specially at a time of heightened threats by the US.
