TEHRAN – The chief commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Monday described Iran as the focal point of confrontation with the adversaries where hostile plots are being thwarted, adding the country has inflicted successive defeats upon the enemies.
Major General Hussein Salami highlighted the IRGC’s battle against hostile moves aimed at upsetting security in Iran, saying Tehran serves as a focal point of prudence, vigilance and strategy that stands against the world of heresy.
The enemies have identified the location and are mindful that this is the point which is inflicting successive defeats upon them, particularly across the Islamic territories, he said.
“The enemies have realized that the accelerating decline of their power originates from this point… which is the city of Tehran,” the commander said, adding that all hostile plots are being thwarted by the Islamic Republic.
General Salami also described Tehran as the anchorage of calm and stability of the Islamic Revolution and the society.
In comments in November 2021, General Salami had ruled out the possibility of a war against Iran, saying the enemy has become disappointed with military action on the Islamic Republic.
A military war on Iran has been dropped off the enemy’s list of options, the commander said, warning that the adversaries have instead targeted the Iranian people, their religion and their livelihood.
