Iran ready to defend oppressed people: Firouzabadi


Iran is ready to plan revolutionary defense to protect the oppressed people and nations around the world, Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said here.

Addressing a ceremony to mark Dezfoul Day in this southwestern province on Monday evening, Firouzabadi said Saudi Arabia has oppressed the Yemeni people by its attack on Yemen. 

The Saudi attacks against Yemen will lead to annihilation of Riyadh, said he.

The US has been hatching plots in the region since years ago, said Firouzabadi, adding it has always stood in vain against the nations’ resistance.

He further described Iran’s military forces as strong.

He added Iran is not for war but will defend the Islamic values and the oppressed people all over the world.

Iranians annually celebrate the Dezfoul Day on May 25, commemorating the heroic resistance of Dezfoul’s residents during the 1980-88 Iran-Iraq war.
