Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour

The top commander of the IRGC ground forces, Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour has emphasised that attacking deep inside enemy line is part of IRGC ground forces strategy.

Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking to top commanders and personnel of IRGC ground forces in Mashhad, northeastern Iran, Brigadier General Pakpour emphasised that the Islamic Republic of Iran is now a credible regional power, and this is something which the Americans find hard to accept.

He added: "The shooting down of an American surveillance drone by the IRGC recently, shattered the invincible image of the US military, and changed the situation in Iran's favour.

The top commander of the IRGC ground forces went on to praise the Leader of the Islamic Revolution for his vigilance and deep knowledge of the enemy, especially in the recent meeting with the Japanese prime minister, and stressed that Iran has wrongfooted the enemy, making the enemy strategy uncertain. Brigadier General Pakpour added: "The enemy will not let go of Islamic Iran, this is why we have to be ready on all fronts, particularly on the economic front, countering enemy sanctions, finding ways round them, making them ineffective, and scuppering enemy plots."

The top commander of the IRGC ground forces stressed that Iran is capable of providing for all of its own defensive needs, calling for use of all internal resources to counter America's sanctions. Brigadier General Pakpour said: "If we show weakness vis-a-vis US sanctions, the Americans will try to use that as an instrument against us."
