Iran Army Chief of Staff: Trump Statements Threatening Iran Are "a Joke"

(Mehr News-Iran) Maj. Gen. Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces, on Thursday lampooned Donald Trump's remarks about Iran during his presidential campaign as a mere joke. "The empty saber-rattling of the president-elect of the U.S. is ludicrous...since we are the major dominant force in the Persian Gulf. Today, our power is manifest in other fronts, including in Iraq and Syria, and they should recalibrate their evaluation of Iran's military might." He added that Syria, with Iran's help, produced missiles in Aleppo which Hizbullah used to target Israeli cities during the Lebanon War of 2006.
