IRGC Has Evidence of US Support for Daesh: Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The IRGC has infiltrated the US military command and control centers in recent years and has obtained evidence of American operations and support for Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group, a top commander said, warning that disclosure of those information would bring discredit on the US.
In remarks aired on television on Friday evening, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said if the high-ranking Iranian officials give permission, the IRGC would release evidence showing what scandals the US has been involved in inside Iraq and Syria.
The IRGC has infiltrated the US command and control centers over the past years and has obtained information on what the Americans have been monitoring, what they have been ignoring, and how they have been supporting Daesh, the commander added.
Should the IRGC be given permission to disclose that evidence, the US will be mired in a big scandal, the general warned.
He further highlighted the great progress Iran has made in the military sphere, saying none of the armies in the world is comparable to the IRGC.
Commenting on the US move to drop a large bomb on Afghanistan back in April, Brigadier General Hajizadeh said while the US may have the mother of all bombs, the IRGC is in possession of the “father of all bombs.”
The IRGC Aerospace Force has ordered the Defense Ministry to produce 10-ton bombs, the commander added, saying such huge bombs are dropped from Ilyushin planes and have a great destructive power.
Iranian military officials maintain that the country does not favor a war, but it is fully prepared to respond to any hostile assault.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has on several occasions cautioned the adversaries that Iran’s response to any assault will not be confined to defense alone, but aggressors will face a crushing response.
