Tehran, Aug 30, IRNA -- Commander of Khatam ul-Anbia Air Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmailee stressed the full preparedness of the Iranian Armed Forces against any possible foreign threats.

“The Iranian youth are ready to prepare a blazing hell for the enemies if they become stupid enough to commit an act of aggression against the Islamic Republic,” the Iranian commander said in a message on the occasion of the anniversary of the setting up of Khatam ul-Anbia Air Base in September 2008.

“The Iranian youth, especially Khatam ul-Anbia’s staff, have once again proven that the pressures and sanctions have not affected the wisdom, will and faith of the young Iranian warriors,” he added.

In similar statements earlier this week, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi underlined IRGC’s preparedness to confront enemies’ threats, and reiterated that if the US dares to attack Iran it will only result in the destruction of the US vessels and death of the American soldiers.

“If the US does a stupid move to confront Iran, it will have no result for them other than destruction of the American vessels and receiving the US soldiers’ dead bodies,” Rear Admiral Fadavi said, addressing an introduction ceremony for the commander of Imam Khamenei Naval Sciences and Techniques Complex in the Northern Gilan province on Wednesday.
