IRGC Aerospace Force Commander: We Do Not Need to Build Missiles That Can Reach U.S. Soil [Video]

IRGC Aerospace Force commander General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh met with members of the Student Basij at Sharif University at the IRGC Aerospace Exhibition, and footage of the meeting was aired on Emtedad Online (Iran) on November 15, 2021. General Hajizadeh said to the Basij members that it is unnecessary for Iran to strike targets on American soil because there is a significant enough American presence in the region surrounding Iran. Claiming that the majority of American forces are present in the Middle East, General Hajizadeh said that Iranian pressure on American forces in the region is in response to America’s 2020 killing of IRGC Qods Force commander General Qasem Soleimani. In addition, he said that Iranian security forces should have prevented the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh and the recent cyberattack on the Natanz nuclear facility, and he blamed this failure in part on former Iranian President Rouhani’s “pro-Western” government. General Hajizadeh also said say that strikes against Israeli ships, fires in Israel, and an explosion in an Israeli factory are all retaliation against Israel for the killing of Fakhrizadeh. Later in the meeting, General Hajizadeh added that Iranian forces are present “from the Red sea to the Mediterranean Sea” and are no longer restricted to Iran’s borders. General Hajizadeh then turned to the students and said that since they are young, they will see the day when the “Zionist regime” is annihilated.

In a January 4, 2022 interview on Al-Manar TV (Hizbullah-Lebanon), IRGC Deputy Commander-in-Chief Admiral Ali Fadavi said that in the 2016 Farsi Island incident, the Americans quickly realized that they were "criminals on death row" and that they are at risk of being targeted by the full force of the IRGC, so they quickly obeyed the IRGC's orders. He also said that when the time is right, Iran will strike America and its Zionist "followers" with great force. In addition, he said that if Israel acts against Iran, Iran will turn Haifa and Tel Aviv into dust. Moreover, Admiral Fadavi said that the Americans will soon be annihilated and that they will cease to control the world and the region.
