US President Donald Trump has made a miscalculation about Iran’s power as the IRGC enjoys the military power to defend the Middle East in even less than 12 minutes, Chief-Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari noted, Mehr News Agency reported.
According to him, Trump was wrong when he speculated that the Islamic Republic’s power has decreased since he took office.
“If in the past we could defend the Middle East, not to impose our hegemony on the whole region, within 12 minutes , today the time is even lower than that,” he said.
He underlined Mohammad Ali Jafari stressed that Iran will never avoid giving decisive responses outside its borders if its security is endangered.
On the US sanctions against the Islamic Republic, Major General Jafari said the Iranian nation is accustomed to the US unilateral sanctions.
“Despite sanctions, we have managed to achieve self-sufficiency and strengthen our national solidarity which will grow further even after the sanctions.”
In an address to his supporters on Tuesday, Trump said Iran planned to take control of the Middle East, in just “12 minutes.”
