TEHRAN (Iran News) – The enemies of the Islamic Republic are facing a lose-lose situation with a sense of “strategic frustration”, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami said.
In a speech at a cultural event on Wednesday, Major General Salami said the Islamic Revolution has handled the confrontation with the foes in such a way that the enemy is currently stuck in lose-lose conditions.
The enemy will have to pay a cost if it chooses to stay and will feel the shame of escape if it runs away, the commander added.
“The enemy will break apart if it remains in Yemen, and will have fled if it leaves,” he said about the Saudi-led military campaign against Yemen.
The enemies of Iran have a sense of strategic frustration and suffer from political dementia, the general added.
Pointing to the failure of the enemy’s plot to impose an economic blockade on Iran, the IRGC commander said the Islamic Republic has also defeated the enemy’s psychological operations.
He went on to say that the U.S. has suffered a defeat even in employing tactics.
He also added that enemies could not contain Iran’s power.
Salami stated that the Islamic Republic had disappointed the enemies who imposed pressure on Iran.
The top general noted that the enemies wished to spoil the jihadi spirit among the Iranian youth. Still, the Iranian young people were aware, and the enemies did not know what strategic action to take.
He also called Iran’s Sacred Defense a role model for all Muslims to follow.
Pointing out that all capacities of a county are manifested during a war, Salami added that Iran’s Sacred Defense was the longest and the most unjust war in history.
Before the ceremony, 220 books on Sacred Defense were unveiled, and families of martyrs and veterans were honored.
