Qods Force Commander: US Only Understands Language of Force

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Qods Force Brigadier General Esmayeel Qa’ani downplayed Israel’s attempts to weaken the resistance front, and further said that the US has proved that it only understands the language of force.

“We know how to speak with a country like the US which only understands the language of force,” General Qa’ani said on Tuesday.

He also played down Israel’s attempts to weaken the resistance front, and said the regime has failed in its attempts and has been forced to build a tall wall around itself.

General Qa’ani said that the US situation in the region is no better than Israel as evidenced in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Elsewhere, he stressed the efforts made by former IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General martyr Qassem Soleimani to establish security in the region, and said in the past 10 years, he was directly confronting the world’s most notorious terrorists.

In relevant remarks earlier this month, Spokesman of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif warned Israel that it will certainly be responded for its mischiefs and terrorist acts against the Iranian scientists and people.

"Certainly, the usurper and fake Zionist regime will receive the response to its mischief," General Sharif said, referring to Israel’s assassination of the Iranian scientists and people.

He said that the enemy's all-out confrontation against the Islamic Republic is indicative of Iran's strong power and recent incidents have shown that the western power have lost power and the US has no more the ability to impose hegemony on others.

Also earlier this month, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Hossein Salami said the enemies should be scared of the country’s defense power, stressing that any move by enemies would receive an all-out fire of Iran’s Armed Forces.

“The ill-wishers and enemies of Iran should be afraid of our defensive power, a part of which was displayed in the recent military drills,” General Salami said on the sidelines of IRGC Ground Force’s Great Prophet 16 wargame, adding that any would-be threat of the enemies will be responded with an all-out fire.

“Iran’s Armed Forces have always kept their spirit of authority, defense, resistance and aggression against the enemies,” he said, and noted, “The enemy should take a lesson from the firepower showcased by the Iranian forces during the Great Prophet drills.”

"The IRGC Ground Force’s combat power is much higher than what we saw today, and in this exercise, we showed only a small example of this power,” the commander said.
