Tehran Times Political Desk
TEHRAN, July 25 (MNA) – Brigadier General Naser Mohammadifar, commander of the army’s land force, said here Sunday that Iran’s army forces have succeeded to produce modern weapons equipment despite the economic sanctions that the country faces.

If the U.S. knew that it could defeat Iran it would have attacked the country so far, Iran’s Students’ News Agency quoted him as saying.

The commander said that the U.S. is precisely studying Iran in order to estimate the nation’s courage, martyrdom-seeking beliefs, patriotic feelings and tendency toward the Islamic Revolution.

And they are aware that they do not have the power to attack Iran under any circumstances, he added.

“The dignity, honor and reputation of Iran and the Islamic Revolution lie in the hands of the country’s military power and armed forces and the enemy knows that we will consider martyrdom a great blessing once the commander of all forces issues an order,” Mohammadifar said.

He went on to say that Iran is currently in an exceptional situation and the U.S. has gained presence around the country as far as the Arvand River from South and only 10km to Iran in Afghanistan.

Mohammadifar stressed that Iran’s armed forces is observing all these movements with vigilance and awareness.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi also told reporters on Sunday that no country can dare attack the Islamic Republic of Iran."
