Iran’s Army Commander warned that Iran’s reaction to any military attack would not be confined to defense alone and will draw a devastating strike.
Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi addressing a military ceremony in Iran’s northwestern city of Tabriz on Sunday, said: “We will not be the first side to start a war, but we do not rely only upon defense if Iran comes under attack," the commander said.
"Initially, we would start with defense at the launch of an attack from the enemy, but our offense power and our capability to deal blows after the start of the attack by the aggressors would be devastating and make them regret from their move,” Major General Mousavi underscored.
General Mousavi stressed that that Iranian Army will vigorously protect the Iranian nation and its causes.
Iranian military and political officials have repeatedly warned the enemies against the dire consequences of a military action against the Islamic Republic after US provocation in the Persian Gulf region.
