Iran rejected attacks on its military system and said that Americans failed to sabotage Iran's missile program.

Iran Press/Iran news: "The United States and the Zionist regime were after sabotage in some Iranian military units, but we could manage to convert their threats to opportunities," Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said in a local ceremony in Hamedan Province on Tuesday.

According to Iran Press, Hajizadeh added that the enemy had embedded micro accelerometers in some of the manipulated pieces that we identified them and applied those micro accelerometers to produce other military components.

"We were watching the ISIL airplanes and their activities in the skies of Iraq and Syria at IRGC Control Center" he said.

Expressing Iran's self-sufficiency in science and technology, Commander of IRGC Aerospace Force said "Today, thanks to blessings of Islamic Revolution, we have made significant progress in the field of manufacturing aircraft and car components and parts."

Elsewhere in his remarks, Hajizadeh said the enemies will never remove sanctions against Iran and we have to make them ineffective forever, with a thought-out outlook for the future.

"Most of the sanctions are domestic as some of Iranian bank CEOs follow the plots of the Arrogant instead of implementing Central Bank's regulations," he noted.

In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in manufacturing military equipment and hardware despite sanctions and economic pressures on the country.

The Islamic Republic maintains that its military power poses no threat to other countries, and that Iran's military doctrine is purely defensive and based on the concept of deterrence. 101
