TEHRAN – Even those pretending to be superpowers will not dare to invade Iran and the enemy will not be able to achieve its ‘inauspicious goal’ of undermining the Islamic Republic, according to the Iranian military commander-in-chief. emphasized.
Major General Abdulrahim Mousavi said on Monday afternoon, more than 40 years after the Islamic revolution, that “no one, including those claiming to be a superpower, is trying to attack Iran, or even thinking about it. ” he declared.
Despite their best efforts, the adversary continues to divide Iran, sow chaos and instability, undermine its productive sector and economy, and impede the country’s scientific and technological progress. He claimed that he would never succeed in his ambition.
He pointed out that the adversaries have done all they can to plan, coordinate and aid in the recent turmoil in Iran, using money and intelligence services.
Mousavi said separatist groups, Persian-language satellite networks, messengers, and similar organizations were also actively involved and responsible for field command.
Riots erupted in certain Iranian cities in mid-September after the death of a young Iranian woman named Mahsa Amini. A 22-year-old man was found unconscious inside a Tehran police station and was pronounced dead in hospital three days later.
According to the Iranian Forensic Agency’s official assessment, Amini’s death was brought about by illness rather than a blow to the skull or other vital body parts.
Meanwhile, with the help of Western powers, particularly the United States, mobs rampaged through the state, violently attacking security personnel and causing serious damage to public property.
The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence released a joint statement late last month highlighting the important role foreign intelligence agencies, particularly the CIA, have played in organizing the violent protests.
The commander-in-chief also recalled allowing Americans to use smartphones and software to further their cause in Iran more than a decade ago.
“The millions of internet users are their army, according to them. We have to be careful,” he said.
In his remarks, Mousavi cited the country’s accomplishments in the military industry, particularly the recent launch of the long-range Sayad B4 missile production line, noting that few countries in the world have combined technology and political independence to such an extent. said no.
He argued that the Iranian people should be cognizant of their country’s achievements and their path to freedom, as Iran’s opponents were wary of its strength and courage.
On Sunday, Iran’s Defense Ministry unveiled an updated version of the Bavar-373 (Belief-373) surface-to-air missile system and officially launched the Sayad B4 missile production line.
During testing, the Bavar-373 system’s optimized radar collided with a stationary target at a distance of over 450 kilometers and within a radius of over 300 kilometers.
The Bavar-373 system reportedly increased its detection radar range from 350 km to 450 km, and its engagement range from 260 km to 400 km.
Also on Saturday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force successfully launched a satellite-carrying rocket Qaem-100.
The first of its kind, the Qaem-100, built by Iranian scientists, is capable of orbiting satellites weighing up to 80 kg at 500 km above the Earth’s surface.
The launch of a three-stage solid-fuel suborbital vehicle has been regarded as a symbol of “national strength.”
A spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs wrote on his Twitter account on Monday, “The successful launch of the Qaem-100 satellite carrier is a testament to the strength of the country and the ability of Iran’s young scientists to overcome the pinnacle of science and modern technology. It was another demonstration.”
He said what makes the launch even more significant is that it took place despite enemy sanctions, including the US’ so-called “maximum pressure” campaign against Tehran.
“This is what has enraged Iran’s known enemies,” Kanani added.
