The head of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guard Corps on Wednesday warned Tehran was on the brink of full-on conflict with its enemy.
Major General Hossein Salami said the enemies have adopted the strategy of putting maximum pressure on Iran to break the steadfastness of the nation, adding, however, that they will once again end up in failure in the face of the Ira.
“We are on the cusp of a full-scale confrontation with the enemy,” Iranian media quoted the senior commander as saying.
“This moment in history — because the enemy has stepped into the field of confrontation with us with all the possible capacity — is the most decisive moment of the Islamic revolution,” added Salami, who tapped as the new IRGC chief last month.
The remarks came a day after Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei downplayed the United States’ highly belligerent rhetoric against Iran, stressing that Washington’s real capability do not match its inflated bluster.
