Iran’s defensive power has gone beyond the missile industry, said a top defense ministry official on Friday.

Mohammad Ekhtelat, who was addressing a large crowd of worshipers before Friday prayers in the southwestern Iranian city of Ahvaz, said that the enemies of the Iranian nation have focused on Iran’s missile defense system.

‘Iran’s Defense Ministry is one of the most strategic ministries of the Iranian government which has complicated activities to boost the country’s defensive and deterrent capability,’ the official said.

‘Iran’s deterrent power has gone far beyond missile system and we have made significant progress in all defensive areas.’

He said that short-, middle- and long-range missiles, as well as ballistic 313 missiles are just part of Iran’s defensive capabilities, beside which Iran has made incredible achievements in marine and air industries over the past few years.

‘The enemies of Islam should know that Iran’s deterrent power, with reliance on speedy vessels, highly-advanced drones, long-range missiles and modern fighter jets, is far beyond their expectations,’ Ekhtelat said.

I’ve heard that something like 70% of Iranian engineering students are now women, since STEM fields aren’t highly respected in Iran. Fun to think that if anything is going to deter US, Israeli, or Gulf State interference with Iran, or punish any actual invasion, it will in large part be because of the efforts of the ‘inferior’ sex, and not because of whatever more ‘worthy’ careers men flock to.

This is clear that with 9 S-300 batteries, 10 Pantsir, a few EW gadgets and a bunch of aircraft antiques with their $6bln budget, they’re able to deter the US or Israel or the Saudis to act if they want, for sure! Saudi-Barbaria has now more military budget than Russia… It’s even beginning to become a serious concern and not only in the ME… Invading? Didn’t you noticed it wasn’t trendy any more? Last trend is sending the countries to the stone age and leaving it in such bad shape indefinitely. Be aware of this : Iran is nothing else… Read more »
