Missile shields in region cannot counter Iranian missiles: Safavi

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Nov 23, IRNA -- Supreme Leader’s Senior Military Advisor Major General Seyyed Yahya Rahim-Safavi referred to the inefficiency of the missiles deployed in the region to protect the Zionist regime and said that the missiles will not be able to counter Iranian missiles.

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has such a full control over the regional developments that it even observed the less-publicized maneuver of the Israeli regime in the occupied land of Palestine.

Commenting on the military capabilities of trans-regional countries, Safavi also said that Iran has under control all the military movements of the Zionist regime and the US. It has omprehensive information on the joint war games of the Zionist regime and NATO in the Mediterranean Sea and even the planes used in the exercises.

The situation inside Israel and the US is not such that they carry out a foolish act and attack Iran, he said, noting that Obama wants to run for presidency in the next round and it is not advisable for him to launch a new war.

The Americans are currently paying for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he said.

“We are ready to counter them and plans have been made to respond to any military action strongly,” he said.

He further noted that the Americans are very vulnerable in the Persian Gulf, he said, noting that waging a war in the region amounts to creating a huge economic and political crisis in the world.

Iran favors peace and stability in the region and will never launch a war but it will make a warmonger feel regret, he said.

Safavi further stated that the entire land of Palestine is within the range of the Iranian missiles.
