IRGC chief warns any military action against Iran will backfire


The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) warned the enemies that any military action against the Islamic Republic would backfire on the perpetrators, stressing that all the conspiracies against the country are doomed to fail.
“Despite all of their plots and contrivances, the enemies of the Iranian nation have found out today that [issuing] military threats against us is useless,” Major General Hossein Salami added during a meeting in the western province of Kermanshah on Monday, Press TV reported.
Such an option “does not bring them [their expected] outcome,” he said. “If they resort to military action against Iran, they would get the opposite result and end up regretting [the move].”
Major General Salami, however, noted that “military warfare no longer ranks among the enemy’s choices”.
The adversaries even stopped short of conquering the battlefield through their proxies, including Takfiri terrorists, he said.

‘All other schemes abortive too’

Despairing of military action, the enemies, who have armed themselves with the entirety of the instruments that they have at their disposal, have taken aim at the country’s economy, the commander said, referring to the tough economic sanctions that the US has imposed on Iran.
The enemies have also started targeting the people’s affinity with the country’s Islamic Establishment and the nation’s sense of hope, Major General Salami added.
However, all of the enemies’ provocative schemes are doomed to fail, he noted.
The Iranian youths are negating all of the enemies’ sanctions and realizing remarkable instances of advancement every day, Major General Salami said.
“We have blocked the enemies’ path and their calculations aimed at sowing sedition will get nowhere,” he assured.
“They have been defeated in all of these dreams,” said the commander, adding the more they try, the more frustration they will experience in their efforts to target the Islamic Republic.

‘We stand until the end’

The Islamic Republic’s goal no longer rests only in avoiding defeat, Major General Salami said, adding the country is now in pursuit of victory and conquest of greater arenas.
“We stand until the end, and the end of this steadfastness equals complete decline of an enemy, whom as we see is experiencing its twilight [era],” he stated.
