iran-supreme-leader-ayatollah-ali-khameneiIran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called on Sunday for the armed forces to increase their combat capability.

“Given our vast maritime borders and the enemy’s huge investments in this area, our armed forces should continuously improve their (combat) readiness, irrespective of political calculations,” Khamenei said. “Peacetime offers great opportunities for our armed forces to…build up on preemptive capacities,” said Khamenei.

Generals appointed by Khamenei are maintaining a relentless war rhetoric and unveil on an almost daily basis what they say are new innovations in weaponry.

“The range of (our) missiles covers all of Israel today,” the chief of the Revolutionary Guards, General Mohammad Ali Jafari, said last week. “That means the fall of the Zionist regime, which will certainly come soon.”
