  • Zionist entity to pay for any miscalculation vs. Iran: Senior commander

A senior Iranian military commander said the illegal Zionist entity is after igniting another war in the region, warning that the regime will indeed be paying for whatever miscalculation or wrongful step that it could take towards the Islamic Republic.

According to Press TV, the remarks were made by Major-General Gholam-Ali Rashid, Commander of Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters, which is the country’s topmost military institution that is tasked with coordination as well as operational planning and oversight of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic.

“By inviting Iran to all-out confrontation and threatening our national security, the Zionist regime will indeed pay the price of any strategic miscalculation and measure,” said the commander, who was addressing a gathering of military officials.

Tel Aviv, he added, was after causing instability and warfare in the region by provoking the United States into engaging in such a conflict and prompting bloodshed of the American forces.

‘Active resistance strategy’

Adding to his remarks, the commander laid emphasis on the need for the Islamic Republic to preserve and enhance its defensive-security readiness.

He underlined the need to confront the enemy through the “active resistance strategy that results in defeating its ‘maximum pressure’ strategy” and stressed the importance of staging repeated annual military maneuvers.

The official commended the Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC)’s commanders for ordering many such exercises over the past year in line with a relevant directive by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

Beginning late last year, the Army and the IRGC staged as many as 10 military drills that enlisted the full range of their forces and huge swathes of Iran’s territory.
