Iranian Armed Forces Spox: Crushing response awaits any aggression on Iran


The Senior Spokesman of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi has advised the US, the UK, France, and Germany to halt advocating the Zionist regime in advancing its criminal acts.

We remind the heads of state of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany to stop supporting the declining child-killing terrorist regime of Israel, Shekarchi has said.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has proven that it is not a warmonger and does not seek to spread the war, he added.

The response will be stronger if the regime carries out more severe aggressive act, he warned.

Commenting on the combat power of Iran in conducting legitimate self-defense against the Zionist regime on April 13 in response to the Israeli attack against Iran’s consulate in Damascus a few days earlier, he hailed the preparedness of Iranian missiles and drones that penetrated the so-called Iron Dome.

The military official advised certain countries not to back the illegitimate, terrorist Israeli regime.

On April 13, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) fired dozens of drones and missiles toward the positions of the Zionist regime in the occupied Palestinian territories. The firing took place in response to the Israeli attack against Iran’s consulate in Damascus, Syria, a few days earlier.

“This action was in the exercise of Iran's inherent right to self-defense as outlined in Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, and in response to the Israeli recurring military aggressions, particularly its armed attack on 1st April 2024 against Iranian diplomatic premises, in the defiance of Article 2 (4) of the Charter of the United Nations,” Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic to the United Nations (UN) Amir-Saeid Iravani said through a letter sent to the UN chief the same day.
