Iran’s Armed Forces Issue Stern Warning to Israel and Western Allies

2 Min Read

In a recent statement, Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi, the spokesperson for Iran’s Armed Forces, issued a stark warning to Israel and its Western supporters, cautioning them against crossing the Islamic Republic’s red lines. The warning comes in the wake of heightened tensions following Iran’s retaliatory strikes against Israeli military bases across the occupied territories, which were dubbed Operation True Promise.

The Iranian response was triggered by an Israeli attack on April 1st that targeted Iran’s diplomatic premises in Damascus, leading to the death of Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Zahedi, a commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), his deputy, General Mohammad Hadi Haji Rahimi, and five accompanying officers.

General Shekarchi reminded leaders of the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany to cease their support for what he described as the “moribund regime of roguish, lawless, terrorist, and child-killing Israel.” He emphasized that while Iran is not seeking to expand warfare, any further provocations would be met with a more powerful response than the previous one.

The Iranian military’s might was demonstrated during Operation True Promise, where missiles and drones reportedly evaded advanced radar systems and the so-called Iron Dome, inflicting damage on Israeli military fortifications. This operation, according to General Shekarchi, represented only a fraction of Iran’s military capabilities.

Amid speculation about potential new Israeli aggression, senior Iranian political and military leaders, including President Ebrahim Raeisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, have warned of a stronger and more severe response if provoked1.

The situation remains tense as the international community watches closely, with Iran advising Israel’s Western backers to be wise and reconsider their support for the Zionist regime to avoid further escalation.
