Armed forces displayed nation's resolve in recent incidents

TEHRAN, Apr. 21 (MNA) – The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei lauded the Iranian military power for the True Promise Operation, urging the armed forces to continue to make progress through innovative approaches.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei received a group of commanders of the armed forces for a meeting on Sunday. 

He talked about the recent Iranian retaliatory attack against the aggressor Israeli regime dubbed "True Promise Operation".

In response to the Israeli terrorist attack on Iran's consulate building in Syria on April 1, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and other Iranian armed forces attacked military targets in occupied Palestine with a barrage of drones and missiles on 13 April.

Ayatollah Khamenei praised the armed forces for the retaliatory attack on the occupying Israeli regime for showing to the international community how powerful the Iranian nation is.

"By God's grace, the armed forces displayed a good shot of their capabilities and power and a commendable image of the Iranian nation. They proved the emergence of the resolve of the Iranian nation on the international stage," the leader said. 

He said the high number of missiles and drones launched during Operation True Promise against targets inside the Israeli-occupied territories is a secondary matter.

"The main issue is the emergence of the power of the resolve of the Iranian nation and the armed forces on the international stage and proving it, which has saddened the other side," he added after congratulating the anniversary of the national Army Day to the armed forces.

Ayatollah Khamenei appreciated the efforts and endeavors of the IRGC, the army and the police force and advised the armed forces to continue their efforts and move forward to face enmities and enemies by relying on innovation and initiatives.

"You should not stop progressing for a single moment because stopping means going backward. Innovation in weapons and methods, and knowing the enemy's methods, must always be on the agenda," Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.

In the meeting, Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, chief of staff of Iran's Armed Forces presented a report on the recent reprisal attack against the Israeli regime on April 13 known as the True Promise Operation as well as the latests about the readiness and preparedness of the different armed forces.
