Tehran, July 1, IRNA -- Islamic Republic of Iran's Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan underscored that the Armed Forces would give swift and proportional response to any enemy threats.

'We will target any enemy who intends to get close to our borders," Brigadier General Pourdastan told reporters on Tuesday night.

He underlined that the Army's Ground Force's missile unit has very good capability and capacity.

"Our missiles have been reinforced in terms of range and power of destruction and they have been upgraded," Brigadier General Pourdastan added.

He noted that the Iranian Army's missiles have been tested in recent wargames.

In relevant remarks in April, Pourdastan underlined that the country's Armed Forces are monitoring every single move of the enemies across the borders and beyond.

'The Armed Forces' specialized forces monitor all enemies' moves beyond the Islamic Republic of Iran's borders,' Pourdastan said, addressing the Iranian people in the Northwestern city of Zanjan.

'The Armed Forces develop the necessary capacities based on the results of their monitoring of the regional conditions to nip any threat or aggressive move in the bud,' he added.

Also last month, the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces in a statement vowed to remove any kind of threat posed to the country and its Islamic Revolution.

'The brave and grateful nation of Islamic Iran and the Armed Forces are ready to stand powerfully and decisively against any possible threat to the Islamic Revolution and Islamic Establishment vigilantly and smartly and under the guidelines of the Supreme Leader and give a remorseful response to the enemies of our dear Iran,' said the statement which was issued to mark the martyrdom anniversary of Lieutenant General Ali Sayyad Shirazi.
