Senior Commander:
TEHRAN (Dispatches) - A senior Iranian military commander says the Zionist regime is after igniting another war in the region, warning that the regime will indeed be paying for whatever miscalculation or wrongful step that it could take towards the Islamic Republic.
The remarks were made by Major-General Gholam-Ali Rashid, commander of Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters, which is the country’s topmost military institution that is tasked with coordination as well as operational planning and oversight of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic.
"By inviting Iran to all-out confrontation and threatening our national security, the Zionist regime of Israel will indeed pay the price of any strategic miscalculation and measure,” said the commander, who was addressing a gathering of military officials.
Tel Aviv, he added, was after causing instability and warfare in the region by provoking the United States into engaging in such a conflict and prompting bloodshed of the American forces.
Adding to his remarks, the Iranian commander laid emphasis on the need for the Islamic Republic to preserve and enhance its defensive-security readiness.
He underlined the need to confront the enemy through the "active resistance strategy that results in defeating its ‘maximum pressure’ strategy” and stressed the importance of staging repeated annual military maneuvers.

The official commended the Iranian Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s commanders for ordering many such exercises over the past year in line with a relevant directive by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
Earlier, in an interview with the Lebanese television network Al Manar,  Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif had warned Zionists against any attack on Iran, saying that such a move would amount to "committing suicide.”
Zarif said, "If the Zionists attack Iran, this will amount to committing suicide.”
He said Iran’s goal in Syria is to combat terrorism, calling on Zionist regime to stop supporting terrorism.
"Our goal in Syria is to combat terrorism, and Israel must realize that the policies of supporting terrorist groups will not go unanswered,” the Iranian foreign minister said.
Zarif’s remarks came after top Zionist General Aviv Kochavi had threatened to attack Iran.
