Enemies’ interests will be targeted if Iran attacked: commander

TEHRAN, July 6 (MNA) – An armed forces commander warned on Sunday that Iran will target the interests of the enemies anywhere in the world in the case of “first adventure or attack on Iran.”

The warnings by Jazayeri came as the Zionist regime and the U.S. have ratchet up rhetoric about taking a possible military strike on Iran’s nuclear sites if Tehran refuses to freeze its uranium enrichment program.


Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri stressed that Iranian armed forces know how to defend the country against any external threats.


“The army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps are ready, more than ever, to face enemies and defend the nation,” he insisted.


The commander also referred to the aborted Nojeh coup a year after the Islamic Revolution, saying, “Discovering and foiling the United States’ largest coup against Iran on July 11, 1980, just some hours before its launch, was a secret blessing from God.”


Nojeh was the name of the base where the coup was planned to be launched.  


The U.S. and the UK were directly involved in the coup, and others such as France, some conservative Arab countries, the Saddam Hussein regime, Israel, and some others were also notified of the plot, he said.

“According to some documents, the coup was planned to be widely staged on time in Tehran and other provincial capitals, cities and important places.”
