The Head of the Passive Defense Organization of Iran Brigadier General Jalali speaking before the Friday sermon in Tehran provided comments on the 10th anniversary of the Supreme Leader’s command to launch the Passive Defense Organization and said "The fact that the Supreme Leader under such situations reckoned it necessary to pay attention to passive defense means that we are in a historic era. As he has said we are at a historic turn, in terms of time also we are to see the nature of threats changing.”
He added "The mission of passive defense is to control threats against society, people, and managerial infrastructure via a set of provisions.”
The Head of the Passive Defense Organization pointed out that Iran owns the hypothesis for Islam and revolution in the world, therefore it must have enemies and face threats, adding "The threats have shifted from military to cyber grounds. In the present world threats are forming in a new mold, turning from the military forms to economic, cyber, cultural, and political ones.”
Jalali stated "In such circumstances what is necessary is that a system is formed in the country which observes the enemy’s movements in this sphere and adopts measures to stall them.”
He further said that passive defense seeks to observe threats and find principles and grounds on which it can control the them before they influence society.
"The passive defense along with cyber defense has made the enemy unable to attack the country’s infrastructure, including Fordo and the UCF. It is as a thorn in the flesh of Israel and the US,” Jalali asserted.
