TEHRAN – Major General Mostafa Izadi, chief of the Cyber Headquarters of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, has said the current U.S. administration, which is supported by the Zionist lobby, has been trying in vain to target Iran’s pillars of power.

“In return, the Islamic Republic has succeeded to change the enemy’s military approach from offensive to defensive,” Izadi said, Fars reported on Tuesday.

Calling Iran an important country in the world, General Izadi also said more than 200 American think tanks are currently doing studies on Iran.

He also said in the war against imperialism, “the Iranian nation has inflicted many defeats on the enemy.” 

The general further referred to U.S. sanctions against Iran, saying the pipe dream of driving the Iranian oil exports to zero will not come true.

On April 22, the United States demanded that buyers of Iranian oil stop purchases by May 1 or face sanctions, ending six months of waivers which allowed Iran’s eight biggest buyers, most of them in Asia, to continue importing limited volumes.

The White House said after its Iran move it was working with Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to ensure oil markets were “adequately supplied” but traders worried about tight supplies.
