A senior Iranian commander says the nuclear facilities of the Islamic Republic are totally impervious to any potential attack by the US or the Israeli regime.
“Today, we have achieved the defense capability to make vital infrastructure, especially nuclear installations, completely impregnable and impenetrable,” Deputy Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base General Shahrokh Shahram said on Monday in an interview with Iran’s Arabic-language news channel, Al-Alam.
Iran has tested the impenetrability of its nuclear sites with various weapons and tactics in different military drills, the commander said, adding that it can now be assured that the country has reached the capability to defend its sensitive sites with an indigenous defense system in the best possible way.
The US and Israel allege that Iran’s nuclear activities have been diverted towards non-civilian purposes and, based on the claim, have at times adopted an aggressive stance towards Iran, threatening to launch a military strike against the country.
Iran has categorically rejected the allegation, as the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), has never found any evidence during its inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities to support the claims regarding Iran’s nuclear energy program.
Iran has frequently declared that its nuclear energy program is solely civilian and made it clear that any aggression against the country will definitely face a crushing response.
