The commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said the enemies were in decline and aware of Iran’s military might on the battlefield.
Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks Thursday at a ceremony in the city of Qom to commemorate Iranian counterterrorism General Qassem Soleimani and his companions, who were assassinated in a US terrorist attack in Iraq earlier today. almost two years.
âWe are not afraid of the enemy because we dominate him. They tested us on the ground, so we are not worried about the military might of the enemy, âSalami said.
“The deeper we look into the enemy, the more fatigue and helplessness we see in them, and we are sure this process will continue,” he said.
The enemy, General Salami said, believed that by assassinating General Soleimani he would be able to break the resistance, but the resistance forces are pursuing the path of resistance with more zeal.
General Soleimani, commander of the IRGC Quds Force, was assassinated near Baghdad airport on January 3, 2020, in a drone strike directly ordered by former US President Donald Trump. Soleimani’s companions, including Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, the deputy commander of the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), were also martyred in the attack.
Since the assassination, Iraqi resistance forces have stepped up pressure on the US military to leave its country, targeting US bases and forces on numerous occasions, and at one point prompting the Americans to ask. to “leave us alone”.
Earlier this year, Baghdad and Washington reached an agreement to end the presence of all US combat troops in Iraq by the end of the year.
The US military declared an end to its combat mission in Iraq this month, but the resistance forces remain determined to expel all US forces, including those who remained in the Arab country under the pretext of training the Iraqi forces or play an advisory role.
“The enemy, by assassinating the martyr Soleimani, sought to undermine the resistance front, but contrary to all its equations and thanks to the blood of this martyr, the resistance has become stronger and more powerful than ever,” said the General Salami.
He further pointed out that the enemies of the Islamic Republic were in decline, saying, âjust look at the area of ââinfluence of the United States and that of the [Islamic] Revolution compared to the past.
âWe are in the middle of a global battle. Let us be calm is like the story of Ibrahim Khalilullah, on whom God cooled the fire, âGeneral Salami said, referring to the Holy Quran’s account of Abraham being thrown into a fire, which has become “cool” and “peaceful” for him. âIt is God’s will to calm the fire on the Islamic Revolution,â the IRGC commander said.
According to General Salami, happiness comes through jihad for Allah.
âJihad in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and Yemen is building a great Islamic geography. If this strength and power is not formed, the enemy will dominate us. Without Islamic rule and military might, it is impossible to dominate the enemy and carry out divine orders, âhe said.
