TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A senior Iranian military official gave an assurance that the country enjoys great intelligence power and defense capabilities in dealing with the hostile threats.

Iran has gained more and more power by facing various hostile moves since the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, Major General Mostafa Izadi, a deputy to commander in chief of the Iranian Armed Forces, told Press Shia Agency on Saturday.

Hailing the high level of security in Iran, the general also noted that there is good defense and military preparedness and, overall, the country enjoys full intelligence dominance and good operational capabilities in countering threats.

The comments came after Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei on Wednesday called on Iran’s Armed Forces to remain in a constant state of preparedness to counter threats.

“The Iranian nation is today faced with a wide range of enemies because of its insistence on Islam, independence, sublime values… and the Armed Forces must be ready all the time to play their role if necessary,” Ayatollah Khamenei said at the time.
