Tehran (IP) - The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Iran, in a statement commemorating the anniversary of April 22, 1979, the establishment of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), emphasized the vital role and great mission of the force in stabilizing, maintaining and developing the Islamic Revolution, noting that the Armed Forces especially the IRGC are a pain in the neck of the enemies.

Iran PressCommentary: The statement noted that the role and epics made by the IRGC during the past 41 years since the victory of the Islamic Revolution guarantee the preservation, continuity, and spread of the message and the idea of Islam and the Islamic Revolution to different parts of the world and defeated the conspiracies and enmities of global arrogance and the domineering system against the Iranian nation in various fields.

The late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini, according to the conspiracies and sinister plans of the enemies, in a far-sighted action on April 22, 1979, in a decree to the Revolution Council, officially announced the establishment of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.

The formation of the IRGC was the source of two major developments: The first was a change in the equations of resistance and endurance to the enemy's front, which was materialized during the eight years of the imposed war.

The second development is the consolidation of the role of the IRGC alongside other Armed Forces in responding to security and defense needs in the face of threatening currents.

The IRGC has played a major role in the doctrine of defense based on deterrence and firm response to aggressors. This institution has also proved its strategic and decisive role in dealing with security and military threats beyond the geography of Iran.

While protecting the principles and ideals of the Islamic Revolution, the IRGC has been able to thwart threats and dangers against Iran and the region by neutralizing the conspiracies and evil plans of the domineering system and Zionism, including ISIS terrorists and Takfiri terrorism.

The IRGC has also demonstrated its effectiveness in the field of defense progress and, along with other Armed Forces, has strengthened the foundations of the Iranian nation's authority and taken steps to elevate Iran's establishment.

The IRGC's commendable role in the great test of service in the fight against the Coronavirus and its faithful assistance to the people and those affected in the current situation, along with other institutions, has shown another manifestation of responsibility at critical times. Undoubtedly, the accusations, resentment, terrorist acts and US sanctions against this institution are due to the IRGC's vital role in maintaining the authority and security of the Iranian people against the evil plans of the domination system, and the Iranian people have always appreciated these efforts.

Chief of General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran Major General Mohammad Baqeri on Monday at the 24th National Conference of Commanders, Deputies, and Managers of the Iranian Police Force, which was held via video conferencing, emphasized the enthusiastic presence of the Iranian people at the funeral procession of Let. Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the late commander of the Qods Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps and his companions, noting: "The Iranian people have shown well that they know the enemies and are resisting their conspiracies."

IRGC is now a powerful institution in the field of ground, naval and aerospace warfare with advanced missile power and is a strategic force using the most advanced specialized techniques and military knowledge, and can protect the security and stability of the country and repel the aggressors and has many times proven its ability in the area of hard war and soft war.

The IRGC is an institution that emerged from the core of society and stood up to the aggressors to show the strength and cohesion of the Iranian nation.

Today, the IRGC, with its intelligence dominance on regional developments and the movements of trans-regional powers, relying on defense and deterrent capabilities, is fully prepared to face threats and will face any uncalculated move by the enemy with a decisive, compelling and regretting response.
