Operation against Israel more successful than expected: IRGC chief

Tehran, IRNA – Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the operation carried out by the force against the Israeli regime was more successful than expected.

Major General Hossein Salami said on Sunday that the IRGC had received reports showing that part of the weapons fired by the force toward the Israeli-occupied territories had directly hit their targets.

“Our information on all of the hits is not complete yet but on that part of the hits that we have accurate, documented and field-related reports show that this operation has been carried out with a success that exceeded the expectation,” said Salami.

He said that the IRGC was capable of carrying out a large operation against Israel but it opted for a more restricted and limited one to hit Israeli resources that had been used for an airstrike on an Iranian consulate in Syria earlier this month which killed senior Iranian military commanders.

The IRGC commander advised the Israeli regime to regret its past actions and take a lesson from Iran’s attacks, adding that any reaction from Israel to Iran’s recent attacks would be met with a much stronger response.

Salami said Iran has entered a new phase in its confrontation with Israel, adding that the country will respond from its own soil to any attack by Israel on Iranian interests, assets, notable people and citizens in any part of the world.

The IRGC commander said that the battle was somewhat unknown and ambiguous, adding that it opened up a new chapter of confrontation to Iran.

The enemy's air and missile defense systems, including anti-ballistic and cruise missile defenses, and air defenses that are anti-drone or anti-manned aircraft were deployed in abundance in the small piece of land of the Zionist regime, ranging from the Iron Dome air defense system that deals with short-range projectiles to David's Sling system and Arrow system and even the contributions by the US to the Israeli regime in recent days in the field of air defense, he said.

With the support of the United States, a multi-layered defense of the Zionist regime had been formed from Iraqi airspace to Jordan and even parts of Syria and occupied Palestine, he added.

Various aircraft, including the F-15, F-16 and F-35, which are highly advanced, Gulfstream aircraft, and refuelers that helped the enemy warbirds’ continuous flight, had created a dense and multilayered air defense from the moment the birds entered Iraqi airspace to mid-Jordan, Salami noted.

The regime itself protected from the western Jordan to objectives in the depth of the occupied Palestine, he further noted.

Also, the anti-aircraft and missile defense accompanied by the most advanced systems was in front of us, and it was difficult to pass through this very complex, multi-layered, and advanced system, he said.

It was very complicated to pass the space and hit them on the ground exactly with extremely high precision, Salami added.

Moreover, the integrated capabilities of the United States and the Zionist regime in the field of electronic warfare could have decisive effects on the tools used on the battlefield, he noted.

Therefore, this operation required ingenuity in tactical design, with innovative and smart designs, unknown to the enemy and the use of tools capable of neutralizing the enemy in the field of electronic warfare or acting in a way that makes the enemy's systems ineffective, he stated.

The order and sequence of this operation were carried out in a way that cannot be said now, as dozens of cruise and ballistic missiles were able to break through the deep layers of the seemingly reassuring air defense of the Zionists and the coalition between the United States and France and to influence the Zionist regime, Salami said.
