Iran’s drones have become “splinters in the eyes” of its enemies, says the aerospace commander of the country’s Revolutionary Guards.

“Our enemies say we should negotiate on missiles… and our drones have become splinters in their eyes,” says Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh. “If they insist on limiting the capabilities of our missiles and drones, it shows our strength,” he is quoted as saying on the Guards’ Sepahnews website.

“We don’t need to mention our strength because the enemy talks enough about Iran’s missiles and defensive capabilities,” he adds.

Hajizadeh says Israeli “threats” against Iran, especially against its nuclear facilities, were statements meant for “internal consumption.”

“The Israelis can launch [an attack on Iran] but we will decide the outcome,” he says.
