IRGC Aerospace Force commander General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh said in a May 29, 2023 public address that America had planned the war in Ukraine and that it similarly has plans for a war against Iran. He said that wars have become "hybrid" and involve the economy, media, and culture, because Iran cannot be defeated in "actual warfare." Hajizadeh also said that only "parts" of Iran's capabilities have become known to the media. In addition, he claimed that one of Iran's new Khorramshahr has 80 rockets that and can strike 80 different targets in each launch. The footage of Hajizadeh's speech was posted on SNN.ir (Iran).

General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh: "At certain places, the Americans act professionally. Look at the Ukraine war. The Americans have been planning this war since 2014. They had been planning for this war to break out. Now look, if there are countries that call to end this war, because the Ukrainians are being killed and are subject to bombings and so on – some of the Europeans agree, the Russians agree, the Ukrainians agree, the Chinese agree, and there is only one voice opposing this – the Americans. Why? Because they themselves have brought this war about. They are the ones who have paved the ground for this war.

"They have prepared the same plan for Iran over the years. They have prepared a trap and they have the same plan ready for other countries as well. Take a look at the region.

"Look at the countries of West Asia. Look at Afghanistan's situation, and in how many wars it has bee involved. Look at Iraq and the situation it reached. Look at Syria, at Libya, at Yemen. America is behind all these wars.

"America's profit and interests lie in causing wars, undermining [governments of] other countries, and profiting from this. Look at Syria. Why should the oil wells be in the hand of the Americans? What are they doing there? Did the Syrian government give them permission to come? Why are they present there? For the sake of their interests.


"Dear sisters and brothers, in today's world, the wars have become compound wars. Why have they entered the economy, media, culture, and other fields? Because in actual warfare, they have given up. They cannot deal with Iran. Now look, this capability that was achieved by Islamic Iran – only parts of it have reached the media. Not everything has been unveiled,

"For example, the Khorramshahr missile that was unveiled a few days ago by the honorable Minister of Defense. You should know that when one such missile is fired, it hits eighty targets.

"If we launch 100 such missiles, it will be 100 missiles on our side, but in the enemy's territory, they will become 8,000 rockets, that will hit 8,000 targets."

Crowd: "Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the Leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! Death to the hypocrites and infidels! Death to Israel!"
