Sari (IP) - The commander-in-chief of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) says the assassination of Lt Gen Soleimani did not lead to the severance of the Islamic World's ways and Iran but provided Iran with all the means to expel and destroy the enemy in the region.

Iran Press/Iran News: Speaking on Thursday in Sari, the capital of Mazandaran province in a ceremony commemorating Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani and the martyrs from Iran's northern provinces, the Commander-in-Chief of the IRGC Major General Hossein Salami stated: “The enemy has always sought to keep the country dependent and also the follower of his desires and inclinations, and the theory of maximum pressure also sought to impose pressure on the people, and force them to abandon their progress and achievements in order to control not only Iran but also the entire Islamic region.”

“Just as maximum pressure did not divert the proud nation of Iran from the path of science, knowledge, and dignity, and did not prevent the country from expanding its defense power, the assassination of scientists does not prevent us from continuing the path of scientific progress,” Salami highlighted referring to the assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh.

“Today, all the tools for defeating the enemies are in the hands of the nation and the system of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and our power is unique and unattainable,” he noted.

Referring to the martyrdom of Lt Gen Soleimani, he stated: “The enemies thought that with the assassination of the Lt Gen Soleimani, all the ways of the Islamic world would be closed to us, but the martyrdom of Lt Gen Soleimani did not lead to the severance of the ways of the Islamic world and Islamic Iran, and all the ways were provided to expel the enemy from the region, and destroy them in the region.”
