A senior Iranian army commander warns IS terrorists against any act of aggression.
Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan stressed full security at the country’s borders, and said his forces are monitoring all moves along the borders and would give a crushing and rigid response to ISIL if the terrorist group ever dares to pose a threat to Iran.
“Thank God, the Ground Forces enjoy a satisfactory level of preparedness to defend the country’s borders today,” General Pourdastan told reporters on the sidelines of the annual military parades in Tehran on Monday.
General Pourdastan underlined that ISIL is not considered a threat to Iran, and added, “But Iran has no problem confronting this terrorist group.”
Earlier Iran’s Chief of Staff Major General Hassan Firouzabadi described ISIL as a Frankenstein monster created through a media hype by the Zionists in a psychological operation to frighten Muslim states and advance their goals, stressing that Iraq alone will be enough to annihilate the terrorist group.
