Pointing to the recent sanctions imposed by the West against Tehran as well as the West’s intensified war rhetoric against Iran in recent days, the Leader said, “They speak in a (boastful) way to make us think that an extraordinarily dangerous thing is lying behind these threats.”
“Of course, to safeguard the Islamic Revolution, the dear Iranian nation and the glorious country of Iran, we should no doubt be ready for any kind of condition no matter these threats are void or real,” Ayatollah Khamenei noted.
The Leader further assured the nation of Iran’s victory in its confrontation against enemies, and said, “Surely and undoubtedly, the Iranian nation, the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic would be the winners in this battle of confrontation.”
On Tuesday, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps underlined that the IRGC is prepared for any kind of war and battle with the enemies.
“The IRGC is ready for any soft and hard war with the arrogant powers,” IRGC Lieutenant Commander General Hossein Salami said, addressing a gathering of IRGC commanders and officials here in Tehran.
The IRGC was appointed to defend the Persian Gulf security in 2008. The Iranian army has been tasked with controlling the Sea of Oman and the Caspian Sea, while the full responsibility for defending the Persian Gulf security has been entrusted to the IRGC.
