The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the country’s military and security power is impenetrable and invincible, adding that the country’s enemies are aware of this fact.
Speaking during inspection of the IRGC’s units and personnel in the Bushehr region in southern Iran, Major General Hossein Salami said on Thursday that the military power of the Islamic Republic has been put to test time and again.
“Our enemies are only aware of a small part of the reality of our defense capability. However, they know that the military and security power of the Islamic Republic of Iran is impenetrable and invincible,” IRGC’s chief commander said.
The Islamic Republic’s deterrent capability has been built up on the basis of its ability to “subjugate great enemies,” he said, adding that by enhancing this power, the defense forces are prepared to guard the country’s national security, borders, independence, and territorial integrity on a daily basis.
“We have developed our [military] equipment and power based on the strategy of overcoming extra-regional arrogant powers, and have demonstrated parts of that [strategy] in different fields and certain operational theaters,” Iran’s top military commander said.
