In an address to a gathering of military forces in Iran’s southern port city of Bushehr, Raeisi cautioned the Americans that if they take any action showing signs of “threat, attack, or destabilizing measures” against Iran, the Persian Gulf or the region, they will be sent into the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the powerful Iranian Armed Forces, including the Army, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and Basij.
The US forces will have to suffer defeat in confrontation with the Iranian military forces, he added.
The Judiciary Chief also praised the Iranian Armed Forces for contributing to regional security, stressing that the Iranian military forces will never allow “the Americans, the Europeans and the British” to come to the region from the other side of the world and threaten the security of people and the region.
“The mighty presence of the (Iranian) Armed Forces will not allow the Americans to sleep peacefully in the region forever,” the top judge added.
Iranian military and political officials have repeatedly warned the enemies against the dire consequences of a military action against the Islamic Republic.
In comments in April 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US is aware of the crushing response it will have to face in case of taking military action against Iran.
The era of hit and run is now over, and the US knows that if it gets entangled in military action against Iran, it will receive much harsher blows, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
The US is seeking a way to evade the costs of standing against Iran and place them on regional countries, the Leader said, reminding certain regional countries that if they confront Iran, “they will definitely suffer blows and defeat”.
