President: Iran’s operation shatters Israeli military’s invincibility myth

    REGION  17 April 2024 - 17:10

    Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has said that Iran's retaliatory operation against Israel inflicted not only a military defeat but also a strategic setback on the occupying Tel Aviv regime.

    Raisi made the remarks on April 17 as he addressed a ceremony in Iran’s capital Tehran on the occasion of the National Army Day, where forces with various divisions of Iran’s Army attended a large-scale military parade, and displayed their new defence achievements, and advanced military equipment and hardware, Press TV reports. 

    “Iran's retaliatory operation dissuaded certain regional Arab countries seeking to normalise diplomatic ties with the Zionist entity,” the president noted.

    “The Zionist regime’s defeat was an intelligence, security and military one; but it was a strategic setback above all. Some countries sought to normalise relations with the Zionist regime, but they are now humiliated in the eyes of their own nations. This was a strategic failure for that regime,” he pointed out.

    The Iranian president went on to point to the growing global support for Palestine as well as simmering resentment against the US and Israel, emphasising that support for Palestine and the resistance front has become the ensign of all nations and religions.

    “Our armed forces are ensuring security and peace and establishing sovereignty across the region, and are completely reliable,” the Iranian president stated, urging regional countries to rely on their own assets and Muslim forces rather than foreign interference and partnerships with Israel.

    Raisi also underscored that Iran’s Operation True Promise was "limited and punitive," warning the Tel Aviv regime against any military adventurism as a stronger strike could have totally wiped it out.

    He said the operation shattered the Israeli military’s invincibility myth and proved that the regime’s power is like a spider’s web.

    “Operation True Promise was a limited and not a comprehensive measure. If we had carried out a stronger operation, nothing would then have been left out of Israel,” he said.
