RNA - “If the enemy offends the borders of the Islamic country [of Iran], the attack will entail heavy casualties, annihilation of equipment, and loss of face so much so that the benefits reaped will be preponderated by the heavy costs which they should pay,” Baqeri said on Tuesday, on the sideline of his visit to Brigade 65 of Special Airborne Forces of Iran’s Army.
Last Monday, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Deputy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi said enemies do not even dare to fire a single bullet at Iran as they rest assured of Iran's crushing response.
"The enemies should know that they will receive a harsh, firm and decisive response to any aggression or move against the country and the Islamic Revolution," Rear Admiral Fadavi said on Monday.
"30 years after the end of (Iraqi-imposed) war, no country dares to fire even a single bullet against us and this shows that the enemy is well aware of the Islamic Republic's power and might," he added.
According to Fars News Agency, in relevant remarks in February, Major General Baqeri said enemies did not dare to attack his country due to its high defense capabilities and preparedness.
"Enemies do not have the courage to attack Iran militarily and they have resorted to espionage and cultural measures more," General Baqeri said.
He underlined Iran's good situation and progress in defense industries, and said, "At present, over 80% of military equipment needed by our country's Armed Forces is manufactured inside Iran."
General Baqeri said that the Iranian Armed Forces had also registered good performance in playing advisory role in Iraq and Syria in war on terrorism.
