An Iranian military commander says the ISIS terrorist group does not distinguish between Shiite and Sunni Muslims in its brutal crimes.
Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour noted that the global arrogance targets the human and material capitals of the Islamic World.
In an address to the Iranian Tribal Chiefs Seminar in the southeastern city of Zahedan, the commander stressed that ISIS and global arrogance aim to destroy the Muslim World’s material and human capital at the hands of the Muslims themselves.
General Pakpour warned against the enemies’ attempts to infiltrate into the Iranian society and the government, saying, “We are internally united and the recent terrorist attacks were not religiously or ethnically motivated.”
“In southeastern Iran, it is the people who ensure security and the enemies are seeking to target the very unity between people and officials,” he added.
The Iranian commander went on saying that the residents of the border province of Sistan and Baluchestan establish security through their unity and social cohesion.
“One of the key elements in achieving success to establish security in our southeastern provinces is the security measures adopted so far,” he said.
He called on the tribal chiefs of the region to strengthen their unity and foil enemies’ attempts to divide them.
General Pakpour concluded that the residents of Sistan and Baluchestan had good cooperation with the security forces guaranteeing the region’s security and stability.
