A senior Iranian commander says that the Islamic Republic is prepared to deliver a “harsh response” to even the slightest aggression by the country’s enemies.

“We will deliver a harsh response to the enemies’ smallest [aggressive] move,” Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Aerospace Division of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said on Tuesday.

“Today, Iran’s security and [its] missile and defensive power are stable and exemplary,” he added. He asserted that the country’s defensive prowess, including its missile and drone capabilities, had turned into “a thorn in the side” of the adversaries.

Hajizadeh noted how the country’s adversaries, themselves, acknowledge the premium status of Iran’s defensive power.

The commander cited the country’s successful 1980-88 confrontation against the Western-backed invading military of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein as a case in point for the Islamic Republic’s decisiveness and devotion to preserving its sovereignty and security.
