Iran Widening Battlefront to Break Up Enemy: IRGC Chief

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Islamic territories must close ranks as a united front against the common arrogant adversaries, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said, describing the expansion of the battlefront as a strategy for disintegration of the enemy.

Iran has blocked the path of the enemy in the eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea, Major General Hossein Salami said in a ceremony in Tehran on Tuesday, held in commemoration of the 40th day after the loss of a number of Iranian military advisers martyred in an Israeli airstrike on the consular section of the Iranian embassy in Damascus.

“We are broadening the battlefront so that the enemy becomes disintegrated,” the IRGC commander added.

He emphasized that the Islamic territories must join hands in the fight against the arrogant powers, because Muslims face a common enemy, have a common fate, and share aspirations.

The Islamic lands should not be surrounded by the arrogant powers, he added, saying, “We must safeguard our assets and identities.”

The general noted that the IRGC Quds Force is tasked with preventing the enemies from making inroads into the Muslim world. “By doing so, we are protecting our own country’s national security and also the security and dignity of other Muslims.”

He warned that the presence of the arrogant powers, above all the US, in the Islamic world brings about nothing but havoc, poverty and massacre.

In remarks in 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei described Iran’s presence in the region as a key component of the Islamic Republic’s power and security, saying that’s why the enemies are opposed to such presence.

The US is opposing Iran’s nuclear power, uranium enrichment capabilities, and its presence in the region, the Leader noted, describing it as a sign of America’s deep hostility towards the Islamic Republic’s elements of power.
