Tehran, Iran, Dec. 16 – Iran’s Defence Minister Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar warned that the Islamic Republic would give a “destructive” response to any foreign aggression.

Speaking to reporters in the southern city of Zahedan, Mohammad-Najjar also said that the Islamic Republic’s response to any foreign attack would be fast and decisive.

Asked about a possible Israeli air-strike on Iran’s suspected nuclear weapons facilities, the Revolutionary Guards Brigadier General said, “The policy of the Islamic Republic is completely defensive, but if come under aggression, the response of the armed forces will be fast, decisive, and destructive”.

Mohammad-Najjar said that the Ministry of Defence supported the activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

Iran has had a dual system of armed forces since 1979, with the regular armed forces assigned to guard the country’s borders and the IRGC, which are solely answerable to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, taking care of internal security, often acting as a secret police and an intelligence agency.

The hard-line IRGC is the ideological army loyal to the Supreme Leader and committed to “the export of Islamic revolution around the world”, according to its charter.

The Defence Minister was the first commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ Middle East Force in the 1980s, and personally oversaw the suicide operation that killed 241 U.S. servicemen in Beirut in October 1983.
