Army official: Aggression to drive Iran beyond its borders

The deputy chief of Iran's Armed Forces General Headquarters said on Wednesday that any aggression on Iran will drive the country's operation beyond its borders, the semi-official Fars news agency reported.

"All Islamic world is considered as Iran's support," Sardar Mohammad Bagher Zolghadr was quoted by Fars as saying.

"The regime like Israel is too weak to attack a strong and powerful country like Iran," he said, referring to recent threats against Iran.

Iran's Army Air Force conducted a large-scale war game last week to confront the potential attacks against the country.

Iran has also claimed that it conducted another high-scale war exercise of its air crafts earlier this summer.

Reiterating the retaliation in case of any aggression, the Iranian president warned earlier this month that Iran would cut off the hands of the aggressor to his country.

The United States and Israel have consistently refused to rule out the possibility of military strikes against Iran over its refusal to halt its disputed nuclear program.

Iran's Armed Forces and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) completed military maneuvers called Payambar-e Azam 3 (Great Prophet 3) in the Gulf in mid July to improve combat readiness and capability.

Iran also successfully test fired new long- and medium-range missiles in the drills held shortly after Israel purportedly conducted an air maneuver over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece early June in what was considered as preparation for a war against Iran.

The United States and its allies have accused Iran of trying to develop nuclear weapons under the cover of a civilian nuclear program. Iran has denied the U.S. charges and insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.
