Plots Underway to Sap Iran’s Military Strength

Plots Underway to Sap Iran’s Military Strength

One of the main objectives pursued by the enemies of the Islamic Republic is to undermine the country’s military capabilities and cripple its armed forces, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said. The defense power of the Iranian armed forces is a main target of the hostile plots, the IRGC chief was quoted as saying by Tasnim News Agency on Sunday. Jafari was addressing a memorial service to commemorate the martyrdom of Mohsen Hojaji, a member of the Iranian advisory support team in Syria who was taken captive by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group near the Iraqi border last week and beheaded several days later. “The recent attempts of enemies have been aimed at weakening Iran’s defense power,” Jafari said, noting that after the conclusion of the 2015 nuclear deal, the adversaries have opted for military and missile-related sanctions against Iran to undermine the armed forces. “The enemies know that the only way to hamper Iran’s progress is by impairing its defense power,” he said. The US has recently imposed a new round of sanctions on Iran over its missile program and the IRGC’s activities in the region. Tehran says the measure violates the letter and spirit of the nuclear deal.
