Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said on Thursday the Iranian Armed Forces are vigilant and ready to confront any possible aggressive move in the region.

RNA - "The enemies should know that the Iranian military will not waste even a single moment monitoring the enemies' schemes and adventurism, specially those of the US abominate administration," General Baqeri said in a statement on Thursday on the occasion of the anniversary of the liberation of Khorramshahr on May 24, 1982, following a 19-month occupation by the Iraqi forces, during the eight-year Iraqi invasion of Iran 1980-1988.

"Our hands are on the trigger and we are firmly prepared to annihilate any aggressor and greedy eyes against the Islamic Iran," he added.

"The new conditions of countering the US arrogant and pharaonic threat invite all the Iranians to enter the fields of jihad, full alert, and mobilization of more power," General Baqeri said.

He said that the day of liberation of Khorramshahr was recorded as 'the National Day of Resistance, Self-sacrifice and Victory' in the memory and history of Iran, which reminds of a great epical event that took place with the help of God and resistance against the enemy.

Reminiscing the event that happened 37-years ago could be inspiring and aspiring for the youth, General Baqeri added.

"There is no doubt that the present time is one of the most important ones for the great Islamic civilization, and the model of liberating Khorramshahr is the only prescription for countering the excessive demands of the world arrogant and hegemonic powers," he said.

His remarks came days after Commander of Iran's Army Major General Abdolrahim Moussavi warned enemies against any strategic mistake against the country, warning of a crushing response.

"Thanks God, today, all army units enjoy high morale and full combat preparedness and if the enemy makes a miscalculation or strategic mistake, they will receive a response which makes them regret," General Moussavi said, addressing the Army commanders in Tehran on Saturday.

He underlined the importance of vigilance and preparedness of Army units as a deterrence against the enemy threats, and assured the nation that his forces will defend the country's security and interests to the last drop of their blood.

Also, last week, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami underlined that the enemies of Iran had exhausted all their attempts to defeat the country but in vain, adding that they had reached the end of line.

"Our enemies have reached the end of the line" and despite their ostentatious appearance, they are suffering from "osteoporosis", General Salami said, addressing the IRGC commanders.  

"This is the most decisive moment for the Islamic Revolution, because the enemy has come to the battlefield with all of its capacities at its disposal," he added.

According to Fars News Agancy, General Salami also warned that Iran is "on the verge of a full-scale confrontation" with the enemies," adding that they are trying to crush the Iranian nation's resistance through "the strategy of maximum pressure and by using all of their capacities".

However, they will fail once again to achieve their goal, he stressed.
