Iranian Commander: Mediterranean Coasts Frontline of Campaign against World Arrogance.

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iranian commander underlined that the resistance forces are now fighting the arrogant powers along their borders, adding that "the frontline is now along the Mediterranean coasts".

"Today, the frontline of battle against the world arrogance is the Mediterranean coasts and inside the enemy borders," Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC Saheb al-Zaman Corp in Isfahan province Brigadier General Mojtaba Fada said on Tuesday.

He underlined Iran's continued support for the resistance front, and said, "If the resistance front sustains defeat, then Iran will be the first target of the arrogance front."

"The resistance front is the Islamic Revolution's front to confront the world arrogance," Fada said.

In relevant remarks in November, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami announced that Iran is now fighting the enemies at its strategic borders which have been stretched to the Eastern Mediterranean and North Africa.

"ٌWhile, one day, our nation was fighting the enemy at borders of Karkheh river (in Khouzestan province, Southwestern Iran), now it has expanded its strategic borders in this fight against enemies to the East of the Mediterranean and North of Africa," Salami said, addressing Basiji (volunteer) forces in the Central province of Isfahan.

"The Islamic Revolution is spreading and the Basiji way of thinking has made the arrogant power face with a deadlock and a landmark historical defeat and failure," he added.

Also in November, Salami underlined Iran's military capabilities, and said the country had grown so powerful that it could target all enemies' vital interests throughout the region.

"Iran is more powerful than any other time and our defense power against the enemies cannot be compared to the past," Salami said, addressing Basij (volunteer) force commanders in the Northeastern city of Mashhad.

"The expansion of Iran's military power has raced up and is now making progress at a high speed, meaning that today, we are able to hit all the vital interests of the enemies at any point in the region," he added.

Salami referred to Iran's progress in building different military weapons and tools, including drones, radars, missiles, air defense and radar-evading planes, and said, "Iran is the center of regional stability and security and the security of the world energy and regional and international shipping and trade in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman is in the hands of Iran."
