IRAN NEWS NATIONAL DESK
Head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization says the country has successfully warded off the hostilities made by the Americans in different fronts against the Islamic Republic.
“Since last year, we have been facing new types of threats, which are a combination of all the tools that the Americans have been using against the Iranian nation,” Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali in an address to the Friday prayers sermon in Tehran.
However, he added, Iran has reached a significant balance in foiling these challenges in all fronts, and we can see that the country is currently passing through a phase of success against the enemies.
Brigadier General Jalali noted that U.S. President Donald Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal was the U.S.’s first step in increasing the political pressure on Iran.
He further said that the defeated plot was followed by their military option which too was repelled by Iran’s strong military might and firm response to their hawkishness.
The general was referring to an American spy drone which was shot down by Iran’s IRGC forces on June 20 after it had violated Iranian airspace.
The Passive Defense chief further pointed to U.S.’ efforts to hit Iran through the cyberspace, saying, when they were let down by their military option, next came the cyberattacks;
“The Americans, who suffer from multiple weaknesses in the cyber sector, tried to threaten Iran with cyberattacks,” General Jalali noted, adding that the new option was also tackled successfully by the Islamic Republic’s experts, asserting that the country’s facilities have been secured against such threats.
He said the Americans from 2018, tried to take measures against Iran with various components, one of which was political components such as the withdrawal of the JCPOA, the policy of maximum pressure and at the same time using Europeans to keep us in the JCPOA.
He went on to say that the enemy seeks to intensify sanctions, adding that the enemy has imposed all sanctions that could be imposed, but sanctions can fertilize and strengthen the economy and create an atmosphere of prosperity with reliance on internal capacities of the country.
Jalali said the threat encompasses the new technologies in political, economic, social, cultural, security, cyber and social networks. “The bigger the size of our weaknesses is, the more serious will be the enemy’s threats.”
Meanwhile earlier on Thursday, Jalali said that enemies seek to abuse Iraqi nation’s demand put forward through peaceful protests.
He made the remarks in a meeting with representative of Iraqi religious leader Ayatollah Ali Sistani to Iran Hojjatoleslam Seyed Javad Shahrestani.
“Iraqi people are putting forward some demand but the enemy is trying to convert their peaceful protests intoan unrest by abusing social media networks,” he said.
“Hashd Al-Sha’bi [Public Mobilization Force] and the resistance movement in Iraq are taking advantage of domestic social networks to foil the enemy’s threats,” he added.
Underlining the vitality of thwarting the enemies’ plots under critical conditions, the Iranian General said that to ensure security of its passive defense infrastructure, a country needs have its own domestic industry of modern technologies in this sector.
