TEHRAN (Iran News) – There is a proverb which says “the beaten road is the safest” and it literally means that it is a mistake to test something which has been tested before and now the enemies of the Islamic Republic of Iran are committing the same mistake by threatening to take offensive actions while they have forgotten what have been Iran’s reactions towards the aggressions in the past.
Nowadays Israel and the Western countries have created hype against Iran over a drone attack on a ship and also an attempt to hijack a ship while there is no evidence that Iran has been behind it. Iran has vehemently denied it but the Israelis are insisting on this matter and they want to paint a picture of as culprit and unfortunately the West is supporting such a baseless claim of the Israelis.
Reacting to threats and claims, Head of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Saturday warned the enemies against any acts of aggression, saying they will face a “harsh response” if they retest Iran’s power.
Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh made the remarks after Israel and Western countries accused Tehran of a suspected attack on an Israeli-managed tanker off the coast of Oman and threatened a response.
“The Islamic Republic has passed the test and does not need to be re-tested, but if they like, they can retest Iran,” he said.
“They have tested us and they know what response they will face. We have both the power and the will to exercise power. We will certainly deliver a harsh response and they cannot make such a mistake.”
According to reports, the Liberian-flagged Mercer Street, operated by Israeli-owned Zodiac Maritime Company, was hit near the Omani island of Masirah late on July 29. Two crew members were killed in the incident.
The Tel Aviv regime and its Western allies alleged that Iran had been behind the attack without presenting any shred of evidence to substantiate their claims.
Also on Saturday, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, spokesman of the Iranian Armed Forces, said that unlike Iran, whose strategy is to strengthen security in the Persian Gulf, the United States, Britain and Israel are trying to create insecurity while the Saudi media are intensifying Iranophobia.
“If we want to confront the enemies, we will not let the battlefield be around us. The enemies started the media war at the time of the inauguration of the president of our country, and today they are seeking to forge documents for their actions,” he added.
The commander also noted that the United States has never pursued interaction, but sought to overthrow the Iranian administration.
“If we opt to confront the enemies, we will announce it openly; Like what we did in Ain al-Asad base. Therefore, the enemies’ recent forging of stories against Iran is in line with a psychological operation, and this is due to their fear of the unity of the Islamic establishment.”
So if the West and Israelis want to once against test Iran, no problem, this time they should wait for harsher response to any aggressive action. They have seen Iran’s power in the previous responses like what happened on January 8, 2020 when the IRGC targeted the U.S.-run Ain al-Asad in Iraq’s western province of Anbar after launching a wave of attacks to retaliate the assassination of top Iranian anti-terror commander martyr General Qassem Soleimani.
Americans have not yet forgotten Iran’s defensive and drone power regarding the shooting down of the U.S.’s sophisticated drone over the Persian Gulf space. These have been just simple examples of Iran’s military power which do not let any country to escape unpunished from aggression against this country.
The Islamic Republic of Iran is now in a condition that it can defend itself well and give appropriate responses to any aggressions of its ill-wishers. The world should not be fooled by the Israelis’ claim against the Islamic Republic of Iran as this occupier regime is itself one of the most dangerous countries threatening the world and innocent people.
As Iranian officials have reiterated, Iran does not tolerate any bullying from anyone and any country and it has appropriate response for the aggressions and bullying. Now Israel and its Western allies are better to find other pretexts or charges for war or sanctions against Iran and for overshadowing the nuclear talks because whenever the talks near to a result, Israelis shows their concerns and disappointment to Iran’s success and therefore they resort to such false claims.
But the Zionists should realize this fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran is now in a new era with a revolutionary president and with a revolutionary strategy and it will not bow to any pressure, threat and enemies, and ill-wishers of the country are better not to test once again Iran’s tolerance because this time they see a harsher and different response.
