Iranian army on Thursday denounced US President Donald Trump’s “uncalculated” remarks against Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).
In a statement, Iran’s army said insulting IRGC is insulting the whole nation of Iran and underlined unity and cohesion among armed forces, especially the Army and IRGC as a “united hand”.
“If it were not for the measures of armed forces, IRGS in particular, terrorism would spread to many of regional states,” the statement added.
“Members of the IRGC and the Iranian Army have sacrificed their lives alongside each other in different crises for maintaining the strength and identity of the establishment and will defend together the lofty ideals of the Islamic Republic,” said the statement.
Underlining its decisive backing to IRGC as the mighty pillar of the country and forerunner in fighting terrorism, the Iranian army in the statement ensured that all plots would be neutralized in view of unity among the armed forces and intelligent leadership of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei.
Earlier last week, Trump threatened to list Iran’s elite security force, as a terrorist organization as part of his attack on the Iran nuclear deal.
