‘The Great Prophet 17’ military drills on the coast of the Persian Gulf were launched on December 20th and were completed in five days, on December 25.

The exercise involved the ground, naval and air forces forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and units of the Basij Resistance Force. They were held in the provinces of Khuzestan, Bushehr and Hormozgan.

Iran’s armed forces chief of staff Major General Mohammad Bagheri claimed that these exercises “were designed to respond to threats made in recent days by the Zionist regime.”

“The military exercise … is a serious warning to Zionist regime officials,” said IRGC chief Major General Hossein Salami. “Make the slightest mistake, we will cut off their hand.”

16 surface-to-surface ballistic missiles were fired across the country’s south at the close of military drills. The missiles were identified as Emad, Ghadr, Sejjil, Zalzal, Dezful and Zolfaghar. Their ranges vary between 350km and 2,000km (220-1,250 miles). The fires were claimed successful.

The missiles hit one target. According to the footage, the target of the strike was an object that looks like the Israeli nuclear research center in Dimona. At the same time, 10 drones simultaneously hit other targets.

“Sixteen missiles aimed and annihilated the chosen target. In this exercise, part of the hundreds of Iranian missiles capable of destroying a country that dared to attack Iran were deployed,” Major General Hossein Salami added.

Also, the IRGC armed forces demonstrated the installation for the multiple launch of barrage ammunition, similar to the Shahid-136 drones. The system is based on a truck and may carry 5 kamikaze drones.

 

The drills came soon after the Islamic Republic of Iran Navy received military aircraft, swimmer delivery vehicles and a destroyer which had been modernized. The equipment was handed over to Iranian naval forces during a ceremony at Iran’s southern port city of Bandar Abbas.

Chris Gr

Gog Magog on the rise. Be prepared.

Jnoub

Axis of resistance are the warriors of Allah and part of the army of Imam Mahdi AS

Chris Gr

Axis were the losers in WWII.

Iron_Zion

We are ready for it.

Gryzor

Well, they’re definitely ready for you too. Let there be blood.

Iron_Zion

Becareful what you wish for Gryzor, that is not a game and we do have the capabilities to destroy Iran in an all out war. So going head on against us will be your biggest mistake.

Want to keep going that path? can’t stop you.

Let there be blood indeed.

Gryzor

Save the threats for yourself and take your advice mate, I mean it, as you don’t seem to realize the suicidal heading your leaders have made you take. And this time I will say : WE mean it, as Iranians. You’re dangerously flirting with the biggest mistake ever since the inception of your state and few in your decision-making circles seem to realize what is around the corner. The hell that awaits. Shimon Peres must be turning in his grave right now trying to avert yet another irrational move by your military and PM.

Besides, I’m not the one overtly wishing and gearing for war, so keep your warning for yourself. The Iranians have always been way smarter then suddenly going crazy overnight and giving you the excuse of a first strike : the “going head on” you mention is a strategic mistake that Israelis keep on insisting on doing, not the Iranians of which the entire doctrine in defending the home front is of a defensive nature : emphasis on air-defense, and missile deterrence.

Everybody keeps tirelessly warning you, all the way to your closest allies, Western and Arab alike, over and over, now even the KSA, UAE and Kuwait now openly refuse helping you or giving you overflight rights or logistical bases on their soil for your air-force as they simply don’t want to die for your madness. Yet you keep on getting closer to open conflict and being more and more isolated in that fanatic endeavor.

Don’t try Iran man. But if you insist : accept dying. En masse. Like you’ve never died in *any* war since 48. Not by a very, long, shot. I don’t enjoy saying this one bit, but the stick must be shown when the dog becomes too rabid.

I will not care one bit the day about any victim, collateral or otherwise, should you cross that line and provoke no less than four possible nuclear catastrophes all over Iran and intoxicate Persia and the region for generations to come. If the average Israeli supports turning Iran into a mostly inhabitable radioactive zone, then every single one is my legitimate enemy. Be warned, nobody will forgive, nobody will forget. In Iran and outside. It will be an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth, starting by flattening Dimona. We will *all* crave for revenge.

You know full well our military enjoys the entire range of capabilities and ample training needed for such an objective, and many others. Even the US admitted that regular Iranian armed forces and the Sepah train at least as much as NATO standards. Painfully hitting Israel and traumatizing it for years to come is not a military problem, it is a political one, and as much as I despise the regime and every single mollah in charge, if there is one fields they excelled so far has been that one thing : strategic patience, and rational military thinking preventing chaos even when painfully hit like in 2020 and the Soleimani killing. Even then they only showed their cards without trying to kill US soldiers. But the message was received. And the capabilities proven to the world. Israel will not enjoy the same level of patience as it it not deserving of it considering the scope of its plans against the country as a whole.

Let me sum it up for you : First you did everything to push the US into destroying the JCPOA. Now you say you don’t even *care* what happens of it. So you should be the one careful, not the Iranians. You keep on threatening, they keep on warning of retaliation. What you claim about your capabilities against Iran cannot be done conventionally, so if you plan on resorting to nukes, brace for Pakistani counters and utter annihilation of the Zionist nation.

Second, you realize the exact same can be said about their capabilities to flatten *anything* of importance, civilian or military, in a country with assets concentrated like crazy with an extremely low strategic depth and mass like Israel ? You do realize you cannot take an all-out shooting war against their immense (and now *very* accurate) cruise and ballistic arsenal ? You do realize *many* IDF pilots will be killed or worse, taken prisoner over Iran during an direly difficult deep penetration strike that even the Pentagon said multiple times Israel cannot handle alone without massive stretch of their strike package and terrible risks for their bombers ?

If nothing of all the warnings and call to calm in the world can make Israeli leaders back down from the warmongering stance, then yeah, let there be a *lot* of *your* blood indeed. You took that decision. Don’t complain after Armageddon engulf your every city and turns entire districts to rubble. Short of direct American support in the even Tel-Aviv opens hostiles and finally opens Pandora’s box, there is nothing that massive Israel can do.

You have had ample warning not to make that move. Feel free to indulge despite that. We’ll be there, opponents and supporters of the regime alike, from all over the world, to destroy the existential threat should it arise.

We will NEVER allow you to create four Tchernobyls in Iran infecting our children, their children, and their children’s children simply out of your pathological collective paranoia and quest for an unquestioned hegemony. Not now, not ever.

Iran will rain hell on all NATO assets in the ME, especially Israel and American bases.
After Iran shows how weak America is, every country that has illegal US bases will be thrown out to, because no one will be afraid of the US military. Soon after getting embarrassed by Iran, I give America military less then a month before it loses all its bases

Can’t wait for it, you SL Lebanese will need to find a new land after we are done with you.

Let’s start.

Jnoub

You Jews will leave Palestine after Hezbollah fucking rapes you faggots. Then again, you Jews are good at country hopping

Iron_Zion

Jnoub you don’t even know what we have planned for you, but that’s okay.

You will understand the true meaning of war against the IDF when we will unleash our entire firepower at you. Let’s see how long you last hero.

You will get only death.

Jnoub

You guys can’t even anticipate Hezbollah next move, how the fuck will you do it to Iran? We have a counter for everything you have. Your tanks, ships and homo infantry were all countered in 06

Iron_Zion

Good, then you have nothing to be afraid of.

As I have written to you in my last comments, your countrymen will dig graves for a very long time.

Let’s see how brave your Hezbollah are after we wipe them out, their families, their villages, their cities and the entire Lebanese infrastructures.

Jnoub

And how will you do that? You’re forgetting Hezbollah has modern air defence systems, has capabilities of destroying your air bases and ports, the first hour of the war, your airforce will be useless after there’s no airports and the rest are shot down from the sky

Iron_Zion

i don’t discuss military plans.

Jnoub

Your soldiers have never seen a war, your reserves will run when Radwan Unit infiltrate the north

ISISrael

Hah! like you 5 years old little b*tch know anything about military plans or anything else except sucking your daddy’s dildo and pretending you are an adult. Pathetic sh*teater.

Chris Gr

Kataeb is far better than Hezbollah.

Jnoub

Kataeb is funded by Israel. They kill everyone, at least Hezbollah cares for every religion

Chris Gr

False

jens holm

3 sheep has no internet or are not allowed to use. Maybe they are bah bah thists

Chris Gr

Lebanese and Jordanians fought against Palestinians in the past. What happened now?

Jnoub

When?

Chris Gr

Lebanese civil war and Black September.

Jnoub

Hezbollah has always been on their side

Chris Gr

They are wrong on this one. Except one case when Hezbollah allied with Al Tawhid against communists and nasserists.

Gryzor

And they regretted it dearly, then apologized in the form of an alliance to repel the IDF invasion and re-occupation attempt of 2006. Nazrallah officially thanked communist militias for their involvement in critical joint missions right after the month-long battle ended. You cannot do without nationalists in these territorial conflicts, plain and simple. One has to fight shoulder to shoulder with soldiers bound to their soil and loving it to the bone.

Chris Gr

Yes their common hatred against Israel united them. Iranian MEK was also against Israel some time ago.

Gryzor

Yes, utterly legitimate hatred. An occupier that pillaged and tainted their southern lands for 17 long years, turning Lebanese against other Lebanese through the SLA traitors and engaging in child labor. What truly unified them and led them to victory twice was rather their shared love for their land, culture and independence. This is what united them even further than any kind of hatred. 17 years of IDF officers and soldiers dying to the hand of a relentless popular guerrilla in Southern Lebanon are a powerful testimony to that. Indeed you don’t federate with hate alone. You have to have something to defend in common. You have to love something in common.

Didn’t take long for the village idiot to show up. Pathetic imbecile.

If many really believe anything like that, You could make some kind of Disneyland park and make us come as laughing touists too:)

Iron_Zion

Don’t worry, Iran will get the war they ask for.

When we are done with them, the world will understand what happens to anyone who threatens Israel with destruction.

Go ahead, shoot those ballisitc missiles over here. See what happens next.

You will never get nuclear weapons, you will get vaporized before that day comes.

Jnoub

Your land won’t be able to handle Dimona and every other chemical plant blowing up, Iran 16 missiles right there is enough to make you Jews run

Iron_Zion

I am not worried, I know what we have.

Both Iran and Lebanon will go back to the stone age if they target Dimona, I promise you.

Jnoub

How will your air defence intercept their missiles? Your David sling couldn’t even intercept Hamas missiles that hit Tel Aviv, im telling you your country will be flattened in half an hour

Iron_Zion

Jnoub, we could have ended the war in Gaza in 2 days had we decided to flatten everything. We did not, because of the Gazan civilians.

What makes you think, that we would even give a damn about Gazans, Lebanese, Syrians, Iranians or anyone else if thousands of Israelis get killed or injured? we won’t.

If that day comes, you won’t be shooting anymore rockets because we will end your existence. Then you will know the true meaning of a war against Israel.

No more threats , just do it.

Jnoub

If Hamas went full out, tel Aviv would’ve been flattened, you see how easy it was for them to hit it. Now imagine what Hezbollah will do. Hezbollah has training on multiple fronts in different types of war, IDF only has training from 06 and the babies they’ve killed

Iron_Zion

You’ve got it all wrong and you have only seen our defensive capabilities.

Only few Israelis were actually hurt during the May conflict thanks to our AD systems, that is why IDF ground forces didn’t move in. We can enter anytime to Gaza or Lebanon, but it takes a good reason.

Jnoub

Your AD went against homemade rockets, Hezbollah will send their decoys until Iron dome and every other AD is unable to keep up with the decoys, then the actual missiles come in and nothing will stop them.
Your IDF had to call in reserves against one Hezbollah unit, Nasr unit was even the best and Israel was forced to call in all your soldiers as an emergency because your elite units were failing

Chris Gr

Jnoub, please come to your senses and don’t play the radical game of Turkey and Iran!

Gryzor

he is very wise already merely but not willing to blindly endorse Israel’s expanding occupation regime in areas it does not belong to, plus its warmongering agenda so desperate to start additional wars, let the man be.

Chris Gr

Lebanese/Syrians are brothers of Greece also. Palestinians are somewhat brothers. Iranians, just like Azeris and Pakis are allies of Turkey.

Garga

What was different about those missiles, aside from simultaneous launch/hit, was their warheads’ maneuverability. Although all are ballistic missiles, none of them move on a ballistic trajectory.
Good luck intercepting them. Look who freaked out and howled the most!

A very warm Merry Christmas to all, particularly our Western-Christian friends. I wish all of you good health, peace of mind and success.

PS: Yes, that also includes you, Jens!

Your regime has made a huge mistake Garga, Iran has had enough time to back off and stop their nuclear program an not go head on against Israel.

But that is how it’s going to be played, if your regime dares to shoot any of those ballistic missiles over here, then I suggest you leave Iran while you still can.

Gryzor

The whole world knows full well Israel will take that first fateful shot, Iran has said (litterally) a hundred times that I will only respond if attacked, and will never draw first blood, which would anyway make no strategic sense whatsoever since it would only compel all the world powers including its friends Russia & China to turn their backs on them and leave them isolated against a US-led coalition. But Israel’s current leaders’ utter insatiable madness will sadly lead to the untimely demise of tens of thousands of its own citizens. I just find it surreal how this people as a whole has become such a collectively hateful, hyper-bellicist garrison state IZ… seeing you moving heaven and earth just to trigger conflict is quite the sad spectacle… so much effort and energy to start wars, do you realize ? so much ressources, so much passion just to destroy yet another nation, after Syria, after Iraq, after Lebanon. I mean look at the facts : today Bennet says no matter if the West and Iran do reach a viable understanding, he will be hell-bent on disregarding the JCPOA. Bibi before him succeeded in making Trump tear it apart plain and simple. Iranians only started to breach their own parts of the deal after a full year of patience following the orange guy’s despicable treachery that was also a stab in the back of its historical European allies. As I said many times over : you are the architects of your own pain. Israelis want only one thing : war. And as such they despise peace and stability. They will never contend on their current conquests, their doctrine is perpetual expansion, all over the region, we can see it in their extremely aggressive settlement policy and that extends to neighboring nations as well. Iran will be their final wall at that level.

Christian

Thank you! Not sure about Jens tho, Jews hate Christmas…or perhaps he is just a shabbat goy like IronZ.

I am a proud Jew, you fucker. And you will adress me with respect.

I have always wanted to be a Jew. They say now. Not even amputating my head is enough.

Chris Gr

First Christians were Jews and Arameans. Ancient Greek pagan Lacedemonians also liked Jews.

MrX

Spartans liked Jews only in fantasies. Debunked laughable lies.

Chris Gr

Do you want me to show you?

MrX

I’ll show you. Actually your Jews will show you, you trust them unquestionably. The most eminent Israeli experts directly from Israeli propaganda newspapers.
http://www.jpost.com/diaspora/jews-and-greeks-explore-long-deep-relationship-566991
First half of the text is complaining how “there will always be antisemitism in Greece” and how Greek Ministry of culture didn’t cooperate with them. Oy vey! Interesting parts:

“A far more ancient dispute arose during the conference – the letters from First and Second Maccabees, non-canonical Jewish books written in the Hasmonean period.

However, the letters’ authenticity was and still is disputed.

“Most of the scholars believe that the letters are not authentic because it’s very strange for a chief priest of Israel to just write about friendship and brotherhood,” said Special Secretary for Religious and Cultural Diplomacy Dr. Efstathios C. Lianos Liantis during an interview with the Post.

Dr. Noah Hacham lectured on the academic dispute at length and started by explaining the earliest Jewish reference to the relationship. “In the Bible, there is no hint that there were any contacts between the Spartans and the Israelites or the Judeans,” Hacham said.

“No Spartan would have expressed himself in that manner,” Hacham said, quoting Erich Gruen, one of the most influential scholars who believes the letters were a Jewish invention. Gruen does not understand what benefit a Spartan king could expect from garnering favor with a “militarily impotent satrapy” like Judea.”

They try hard to prove their lies, but not even them can’t deny how ridiculous this entire story is. Like another famous story (also Josephus) about Alexander the Great in Jerusalem, how he was impressed by jewish priests, he sacrificed for Jehovah, then he was blessed and whatnot. But he never was in Jerusalem!
Jews – experts in forgeries and lies for 2500 years.

Your biggest mainproblems about greek and Jewish things are, You has eroded Aleaxandria away becaue You name is as “egypt” or Arab”.

For a longperiod it was a center og that world and You might other places to it, but You dont.

You deny tonunderstand, that Greece wasnt a state as defined by Greece of todays, It was – apart from mainly the Izmir area very active coastliner trade centers runned by tribes.

Its partly exact the same for jews. The even had small kingdoms nor far from Mecca and Medina.

Its pathetic You fight about things which hardly was important for those people in those days.

Even after that You got it wrong too. You ignore Jews and greeks were needed functions because the rest was kept stupid by the ones, You see as heroes and even do today. You support stupidisme by that and fight for Munchausen and Kafka.

Greeks was from Gibraltar to the Aral lake in small numbers all over. The Jews actaully with the Arameans had several states and affiliates and was well represented in the whole ME and more to it. They also emmigrated and lost and won things.

The all over crawking arabs hardly wasnt there. Many of the rest was BAALS. Some might say they came from Balbek. Thats not true. But they were many. Muslims mainly are converted Baaals.

Chris Gr

Again I don’t understand you. But I agree that we and Jews were friends. Jews are blamed for everything secret societies do. Adam Weishaupt was 100% German and his cult controls the world.

Chris Gr

That passage with Alexander the Great was also told by Orthodox priests.

MrX

jens’ god is Joe Biden 😃

jens holm

You can read but You cant understand. Mnay times I have written that Biden is much better then Trump but they really need reforms as sanders propose.

When I write plus for Bidens You have to learn to relate to that.

USA need a lot of reforms. Too much has become too old even most things do work. I also many times has descriebed that and the Sanders(and Obama) solve some important things.

If You solve some problems well, its easier to see the rest.

We are much better in most things here in Denamrk right now. Our Governess is based on consensus by 25% of the parlament and a female premiere Minister just as good or bad as any man we know.

We are number one in low corruption, Our courtds and pilice are sober. We need more qaulified people for advanced jobs, Our economy is more then +. Our electricity is 50% cowered by windfarms, which we by the way invented for the world. We also are very effective having 37 hoiurs a week at work and 5 weeks of vacation.

No offence but danes take good things from otherts and implement them as Ours for own purpose. they shoud see at least some of this.

We do have stability.

Chris Gr

Biden is much worse than Trump though. And yeah, Danes ar faring good.

Chris Gr

Iranians got helped by the West in the Cold War but now they have become madmen. Just like Turks and Pakis. I dislike communism also but these regimes are persecuting many people. And the possibility of these 3 nations to elect something more liberal is very dim. They will elect radicals. With the rise of radicals in Afghanistan and Iraq also Europe is in danger. At least, Egypt and Syria didn’t fall to them.

jens holm

Not everything is bad for europe. Very much by them are stepping on their own feet too.

jens holm

Mabee the hospital should check You up:)

jens holm

Its named as devellopments. Many parts of Iran hardly has water fridays. They now show each other pictures. Thats named as devellopments as well.

For years and years Iran has made a more and more warm and dry climate for their population in their internal and external politics. It seemes to be some kind of contraseption. 80 millions seemes to be enough.

The most important debate right now is about beards are warming You up or protect agains the sun.

Thx for the laughing, it’s simply so funny to look at the iranian military trying to look strong LMAO
