RNA - "We will strike a more powerful and heavier blow in return for any strike by the other side," General Moussavi told reporters in Tehran on Wednesday.
He warned the enemies that Iran's threshold of tolerance is limited and the country's response will grow stronger as it waits longer.
"We can do the strike any time and anywhere," General Moussavi said, warning that Iran's wrath will make aggressors regret their deeds.
His remarks came after the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fired 6 ballistic ground-to-ground missiles and launched drone attacks on terrorists' positions in Eastern Euphrates region in Eastern Syria in revenge for the September 22 Takfiri terrorist attacks in Ahwaz city which killed dozens of Iranian people.
During the operations codenamed Zarbat-e Moharram (Blow of Moharram) carried out at 2:00 AM (local time) on Monday the headquarters of Takfiri terrorists near Albu Kamal region in Eastern Euphrates was attacked from Kermanshah province in Western Iran, 570km away from the targets.
One day later, Commander of the IRGC's Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh announced that the missile strikes against the terrorist targets in Syria on Monday killed 40 ISIL commanders and smashed all targets.
"In these combined operations, we used drones in addition to missiles and based on images we have received, all targets have been destroyed and the (US-led) coalition forces have not been hurt," General Hajizadeh said on Tuesday.
According to Fars News Agency, he added that intelligence showed that nearly 40 ISIL leaders and one of their Iraqi commanders in Mosul were killed in the attack, adding that the corpses of other terrorists were still under the rubbles.
General Hajizadeh addressed the countries, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the US, which support the terrorists financially and by providing information and arms, and said, "We warn these countries that our tolerance is limited."
He added that Iran shows rapid reaction to the terrorists' moves but is patient with the governments, noting, "But they are not aware of the threshold of our tolerance and therefore, they should not take the risk."
"The security of the Iranian nation is the redline of our officials," General Hajizadeh said.
