Iran’s top military commander says the nation’s security constitutes a “red line” for the armed forces, warning “counter-revolutionary grouplets” against any attempt to destabilize the Islamic Republic.
Axar.az reports citing Press.
Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri made the remark during a visit to border outposts in the western Kermanshah Province on Wednesday.
“As it has been repeatedly said, the Iranian nation’s security is a red line for the armed forces,” he said, emphasizing that the Islamic Republic will not sit idly by in the face of security threats.
In September, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRCG) fired seven missiles at a gathering of terrorist commanders in the Iraqi Kurdistan region, whose affiliates had sought to create insecurity and carry out acts of sabotage in the Iranian provinces of West Azarbaijan, Kordestan and Kermanshah.
In early October, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) rained surface-to surface ballistic missiles from Kermanshah on the strongholds of Daesh Takfiri terror group in eastern Syria.
Daesh, which along with the al-Ahwazia separatist militant outfit, claimed a deadly terror attack targeting an Iranian military parade in the southern province of Ahvaz on September 22.
