Iran will not hesitate for a moment to develop its power of deterrence against the threats posed by the hegemonic powers.

Brigadier General Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, also told Tasnim News Agency, “We will not stop developing our defense and deterrent power, and this is a demand by the Muslim nation of Iran.”

The senior military official was responding to the US government’s plans to impose new sanctions over a ballistic missile Iran tested in October.

“This is because we have learned from history that whenever any Muslim country became weak, the US, Britain and Israel either attacked and occupied them or bombarded and debased them,” he said.

Salami also denied Washington’s recent claim about a “provocative” rocket launch by Iran’s naval forces near US warships in the Strait of Hormuz, saying that in case of launching a rocket, the Islamic Republic is powerful and brave enough to clearly announce it.
