Enemy Will Face Captivity and Defeat If Iran is Violated - Senior Iranian Military Official
By Staff, Agencies
Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said that the result of any war with Iran will be defeat and captivity for the enemy.
"We have repeatedly told the enemy that if there is any violation toward this country, they will face the same action that took place with the American drone and the English tanker," Major General Baqeri said as cited by Tasnim news agency.
He added that Iran harbors no enmity towards either Saudi Arabia or the United Arab Emirates.
Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that the Islamic Republic will not allow anyone to violate its borders.
Tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia skyrocketed to their highest levels in years last week following an operation that targeted two major Saudi Aramco oil facilities which temporarily crippled a substantial portion of Riyadh' oil production capabilities.
Yemen's Ansarullah revolutionary movement claimed responsibility for the operations, but the United States almost immediately blamed Iran. In turn, Tehran has refuted the accusations.
