Army Chief: Armed Forces Ready to Foil Threat

TEHRAN -- The chief commander of the Iranian Army say the country’s armed forces are fully prepared to take on any foreign threat that could be facing the Islamic Republic.
“The vessels of the Iranian Navy are currently engaged in defending the Islamic Republic’s interests in high seas,” Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi said during a ceremony here.
“The Ground Force’s units are stationed on the country’s borders in complete readiness. Our Air Defense Force is also observing and surveilling the country’s airspace 24 hours; and our Air Force is constantly patrolling Iran’s skies,” he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Mousavi underlined the necessity of the nation’s vigilance in foiling plots regarding the enemies’ “hybrid war” against the Islamic Republic.
The adversaries’ means of targeting the country could be simply a bullet composed of their “voice, image, and discourse,” the general stated.
“Sometimes, this bullet fired during the war strikes and leaves destructive impacts without us realizing it.”
The commander was apparently referring to the all-out psychological warfare that anti-Iran media outlets have been waging against the Islamic Republic in recent months.
“Iran’s visionary and observant people have, however, come to recognize the enemies’ plots well,” General Mousavi said.
The commander expressed confidence that the nation and the Army’s cooperation under the “smart leadership” of Leader of the Islamic Revolution Seyyed Ali Khamenei stands to increasingly contribute to the strength of the defense forces and the country’s further progress.
