A senior commander said Iran’s Armed Forces “will never be caught off guard” by any threats.   “The Armed Forces will make any country threatening [us] as well as their allies regret [their acts],” Army Commander Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan also said on Wednesday, Press TV reported.  He referred to the proxy wars launched by terrorists in the Middle East as a new form of threat against the Islamic Republic. The commander also warned of a “soft war” waged against Iran, saying the US was investing in winning the hearts and minds of Iran’s young generation. In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems. Iran has also held several military drills to boost its defense capabilities and assess its readiness to counter any possible threats against its territory. The Islamic Republic has repeatedly asserted that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stressing that its defense doctrine is solely based on deterrence.
