Iranian Maj. Gen. Gholam Ali Rashid made a speech at the General HQ of Armed Forces, revealing the existence of armies outside Iran created by Qassem Soleimani before his death to serve Teheran,
He also revealed the existence of “a canal as long as 1,500 km with 1,000 km width to the Mediterranean coast,” also created by Soleimani.
“We created armies outside Iran to protect Tehran, including Hezbollah in Lebanon,” he issued, pointing to the components of Iran‘s power.
Ali Rashid, who is the Commander of the Khatam-al Anbiya Central Headquarters, maintained that the United States and the Zionist regime “are angry and concerned” about Iran’s high regional power.
He stated that his country has bonded with some nations and governments, “creating regional powers and religious-popular powers,” according to the Iranian Mehr News Agency (MNA).
These “six armies that work for Iran” outside its territories “have ideological tendencies” with the mission to defend Tehran, he said, naming Hezbollah in Lebanon, the regime forces in Syria, the Hamas and Jihad movements, the Houthi militia in Yemen, and the Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces.
He stressed that these forces represent a deterrent force for Iran and are ready to defend it against any foreign aggressor.
