TEHRAN – An official at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has said that threats issued by the United States and Israel are empty and meant to ease the pressure they are under. 
“Threats by the United States and Israel are all empty, and such threats are meant to relieve the pressure they are under at home,” Major General Mohammad Ali Asoudi told reporters on Tuesday. 
“The armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran are at the height of their powers and military prowess, and threats by the U.S. and Israel are (part of) a psychological warfare campaign,” he stated. 
The people should be confident that the country’s armed forces are in full preparedness to counter military threats and threats in the area of soft warfare, Asoudi added. 
He also announced that the IRGC’s latest military achievements will be unveiled during the Ten-Day Dawn (February 1-11), which is a national celebration of the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
