In any war of wills, Iran will give crushing response to aggression: Army chief

Iran's Army Chief Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi

Iran's Army Chief Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi says in any "war of wills" the Islamic Republic will respond to any act of aggression in a more crushing style than ever before.

Addressing a meeting with a number of Iranian Army commanders in Tehran on Thursday, Mousavi stressed the importance of remaining vigilant in the face of any possible threat but reiterated at the same time that Iran has no intention to spread war.

He added that a series of Iran's retaliatory strikes against the Israeli-occupied territories earlier this month manifested unity among Iran's Army, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Defense Ministry.

The successful strikes, dubbed Operation True Promise, made the friends of the Islamic Revolution happy and surprised the foes with Iran's deterrent power, the senior commander emphasized.

Mousavi wished increasing dignity for the honorable Iranian nation and a final victory for the resistance axis, particularly the oppressed people of Palestine in Gaza, as well as acceleration of the Israeli regime's collapse.

On April 1, the Israeli regime carried out terrorist airstrikes on the consular section of Iran's embassy in the Syrian capital Damascus, which killed two IRGC generals, Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi and General Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, as well as five of their accompanying officers.

In retaliation, the IRGC targeted the occupied territories on April 13 with a barrage of drones and missiles. The retaliatory strikes have inflicted damage on Israeli military bases across the occupied Palestinian territories.

Following the reprisal, Iran warned Israel against taking any retaliatory actions and also urged the US to try not to involve itself in the conflict and signaled that it viewed the matter as “concluded.”
