Chief Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami has warned enemies against approaching Iran’s borders, claiming there is no safe zone for hostile aircraft carriers within or outside of Iran’s territorial waters.

Salami made his comments on Thursday in a ceremony dedicated to Hassan Tehrani Moghaddam, who is often praised as the father of Iran’s missile program.

“Regarding the successful installation of ballistic missiles into the [IRGC] speedboats, the enemy’s aircraft carriers will no longer be safe in any spot,” the general said.

The IRGC chief added that US sanctions had stimulated the rapid development of Iran’s defence technologies, turning Iranian “ballistic missiles into precision-guided ones,” while claiming that the country’s reinforced defence, missile and drone capabilities will “give the harshest response to the enemy’s slightest mistake.”

Iran has accumulated a large arsenal of domestically-created conventional short-, medium- and long-range ballistic and cruise missile systems.

The US, the European Union, Saudi Arabia and Israel have voiced concerns about these weapons posing a threat to regional and global security, but Iran has insisted that the missiles are meant as a deterrent against possible enemy attack, and repeatedly stressed that their possession is “not negotiable” for the Islamic Republic.

Earlier in November, Iranian and US officials had engaged in a back and forth debate about whether or not Iran had destroyed a second US spy drone, with the Iranian side claiming drone wreckage was being retrieved near the southwestern port city of Mahshahr, while the Pentagon has denied reports that any US drone was shot down in the region, and said that all US equipment “has been accounted for.”

1. Salami is a variety of 100% pure pork sausage 😉 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salami 2. There is no safe zone for IRGC too, even in Iran, where there are mass protests again the regime again… Maybe Mossad and CIA should consider starting distributing weapons, 3. Speedboats are not sheltered, actually, they’re very easy to hit, even in swarms: the CBU-105 is as efficient against speedboats as it is against armoured vehicles. And a single one demolishes up to 40 tanks. 4. It’s not sanctions who reinforced defense, it’s idiot Obama who unlocked $150bn prior to these. He should be trialled for high… Read more »

Israelis using rubber bullets ? ahahahah ROFL xD they’ve been sniping wheelchair-bound elders, teenagers, mothers and 9-year old girl quasi daily with actual FMJs right in the head of heart, documented video evidence confirmed by multiple UN-affiliated NGOs is plenty everywhere and the UN itself condemned it as war crimes a couple month ago, are you even serious trying to pull this one up ? I was about to say “grow some dignity” but suddenly remembered who I was dealing with. Never mind. Just be what you are xD

In their place, I’d use Lehigh Maximum Expansion bullets. The best way to deal with fuckestinians are still how King Hussein and the Lebanese Phalanges did. King Hussein called Pakistani aviation to help the carpet bombing of Pali camps. The Phalanges rampaged Pali camps (Sabra & Chatila). Israel should stop playing the nice guy : it’s the Middle-East! The only language their enemies understand is when they end massacred. Arafat didn’t stopped creating problems in Jordan before King Hussein massacred 27,000 Palis. Israel must understand this. Since IAI is very good at customising aircraft, they should consider modifying a 747-8… Read more »

Yeah your Phalange friends used to walk around with Palestinian organs stuffed into bottles for fun, while you psycho keep on tripping on your nuclear annihilation dreams. What a nice pair you make !That’s always something to see a genocidal maniac talk about his genocidal idols and comrades. How about we crack some jokes about the Holocaust now ? funny the Nazis said exactly the same to murder millions of jews. That “they were a problem everywhere the went”. Sickness has no color, you clinical vermin are all alike.
