An Iranian IRGC Commander said Thursday deployment of NATO missile shield would be inefficient in Turkey.There is also the lack of a definite article before the phrase "Zionist entity."
"The moves are all the US and Zionist's evil acts against Iran," Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps commander Ali Hajizadeh said as asked about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) plans on deployment of defense missile shield in Turkey.
The IRGC official added, "If Iran wants to dispatch ballistic missile, no threat will be effective and we declare they should be on alert about their own defense missile shield if they want to shoot down our missiles."
Also Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said, "The US excuses on deployment of defense system in Turkey are unwise and are scheduled to protect Zionist regime."
He said Zionist regime's problems would not be resolved by such acts and added, "Zionist regime's key problems are its lack of legitimacy and internal collapse as well as awakening and freedom of the regional nations which cannot be resolved by deployment of single radar."
Vahidi noted, "By deployment of the system they want to limit Iranian and Russian power, but all of these excuses are unwise and incorrect."If people had to refrain from doing everything that is really a Zionist plot, nothing would ever get done.
Vahidi in a question asked on probable attack on Syria said, "It is an absolute insanity. We call it a support for the Zionist regime, if such measure takes place." [...]
