TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian border guard commander underlined that his forces have a close watch on all activities along the Iran-Pakistan border.
Border Guard Commander of Sistan and Baluchestan Province Colonel Hassan Asadollahi Sunday underlined his forces full preparedness in safeguarding Iran’s territories against enemy’ elements, and said that border guards succeeded in identifying a terrorist who was planning to carry out acts of sabotage inside the country.
The Iranian commander further added that the arrested terrorist in the city of Mirjaveh in Southeastern Iran worked for the Taliban and Al-Qaeda terrorists for six years.
Last week, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in a statement vowed to take action against terrorists after they killed 14 Iranian border guards in a cross-border attack in Saravan.
“Under the present crucial juncture that the Islamic establishment is going through a sensitive historical juncture and is trying to gain a major achievement in area of nuclear talks strategic achievement, terrorist actions under the command and support of the spy agencies of the arrogant and colonial powers will not be able to harm the sincere and determined will of the Iranian nation,” parts of IRGC statement read.
“The Sirkan (in Saravan of Sistan and Baluchestan) crime should remind the alleged advocates of global terrorism and those interested in establishing ties with the Islamic Republic that the Iranian nation has never been unaware of the masterminds of plots who direct terrorist acts by the counterrevolutionary forces against it and it will consider it in its strategic calculations through monitoring and realistic analysis,” the statement added.
The statement further reminded the positive security measures taken by the IRGC in the last several years in Sistan and Balouchestan, which could improve the security conditions in the area, and said, “Foes and enemies of the Islamic Revolution should rest assured that such attacks can never harm the unity and solidarity of the ruling system and the people in Southeastern Iran, and would rather strengthen their unity.”
“Defenders of the Islamic Revolution and borders of the country will continue combating the anti-revolutionaries, outlaws and aggressive terrorists decisively and powerfully in future,” the IRGC underlined in its statement.
The terrorists who have reportedly been members of the outlawed Jeish Al-Adl radical Sunni Wahhabi movement fled into Pakistan after the operation in Iran’s Southeastern Sistan and Balouchestan province.
