Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri says in view of the information and news presented and published by the influential people and organizations in the US about Iran’s defensive power, it can be inferred that their military and intelligence organizations and agencies cannot understand the depth of the Islamic Republic’s defensive capabilities.
According a report by IFP, he acknowledged that foreigners and enemies, particularly the US, have partial access to information about Iran’s defensive might, and even this limited amount of data has bewildered them and acted as a deterrent against their invasion of the Iranian territory.
Jazayeri said the Islamic Republic’s deterrence power is based on active deterrence, which means the country will not let go of aggressors until it either annihilates them or forces them to surrender.
He further noted that war and military invasion have failed to cast their shadow on Iran for several years, as the country has developed active deterrence power.
Jazayeri warned that this, however, does not imply that Iran can slow down or stop its progress in defensive fields, saying the country will absolutely continue increasing its defensive capabilities given the evil enemies it has.
He stressed that the enemy fails to understand the power and impact of the strong and wholehearted backing provided by Iran’s huge number of human armed forces, adding these forces are among the important factors contributing to the country’s increased military capabilities.
"[Bringing about lasting] Peace and [ensuring greater] stability in Western Asia require the enemies to exit the vast and strategic land. Today, the moves and plots by the US, Zionist regime as well as the corrupt and reactionary regional governments are the main cause of all the evildoing, wars and bloodshed witnessed in this region.”
Jazayeri added nonetheless, even if the Americans increase their military budget a hundredfold to dominate the region, they will fail to achieve their evil goal.
