Iran not on war alert

Iran not on war alert

“Under the existing conditions, we have no indication that we should be in a particular and new military condition, and it is not correct that Iran's armed forces are placed on a specific alert,” Gholam Reza Karami said on Wednesday.

He was referring to a recent report by The Daily Telegraph which cited Western intelligence officials that Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has been dispersing long-range missiles and guards units to key defensive positions.

Based on Iran's defense doctrine, all the country's armed forces should always remain on alert and the existing conditions are no exception to the rule, the lawmaker added.

As an advocate of global peace, Iran will never attack anywhere, however, if the country's territories are invaded, all the Iranian armed forces will launch an all-out attack against intruders, Karami pointed out.

The Iranian legislator went on to say that Iran's long-range missiles are not supposed to be used under the existing conditions, but Tehran will launch the rockets in case of foreign military aggression.

The United States and the Israeli regime have repeatedly threatened Tehran with military strikes under the false pretext that Iran's nuclear program may have a covert military diversion.

Iran has refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

On Thursday, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak once again threatened Iran with “all options,” yet ruling out speculations about the possibility of an imminent attack on Iran's nuclear sites.
