Chief-Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari on Thursday vowed that his forces will take revenge against the foreign-backed terrorists behind the Wednesday attack on IRGC personnel in south-eastern Iran.
In a statement, General Jafari strongly condemned the “brutal” terrorist attack in Zahedan-Khash road in Sistan and Baluchestan province, which killed 27 and injured 13 other IRGC personnel.
He offered sympathy to the families of the victims, the Supreme Leader, and the people of Isfahan province, which was the place where the majority of the martyrs had been born.
He also gave assurance that the IRGC will continue its mission to secure the country’s borders in a more determined way, and will take revenge against the wicked enemies affiliated with the global arrogance.
The attack was carried out only two days after the miraculous turnout of tens of millions of Iranians in nationwide rallies marking the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, and this shows the hegemonic powers, the Zionists, and the American sponsors of terror have been given a slap in the face, he said.
General Jafari further noted that the “brotherly” government of Pakistan, its security bodies and army are expected to tighten their security measures in their joint borders with Iran in a bid to restrict the activities of Takfiri terrorists and mercenaries who are the enemies of both nations.
