Iran able to defend West Asia under 12 minutes: IRGC

October 12, 2018

TEHRAN – Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Friday that the Islamic Republic enjoys the military power to defend West Asia in less than 12 minutes.

Responding to U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent anti-Iran remarks, Jafari told Yemeni TV channel Almasirah that Donald Trump was wrong when he said Iran’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, in 12 minutes, today the time is even lower than that,” he asserted.
