A senior IRGC official stated that "we expect the neighbouring countries to refrain from acting in accordance with the U.S.' and Israelis' interests, which are only meant to wage war and create tension in the region". He went on to remark that "we do not welcome any war in the region, because it is definitely for the benefit of the U.S. and the Zionist regime [i.e Israel], but we are always ready to stand against any aggressor, and we will defeat them with the help of God".
