TEHRAN (FNA)- The al-Qaeda-affiliated Jeish al-Adl terrorist group which killed 14 border guards in a recent attack in Southeastern Iran took orders from the Zionist regime, a senior Iranian legislator said on Sunday.
“If the roots of the recent terrorist events in the borders are found, the hands of the Zionists will be seen and revealed in them,” member of the parliament’s Economy Commission Seyed Nasser Moussavi Largani told FNA.
“The Zionists are angry at the nuclear issue (agreement between Iran and the world powers), Iran’s nuclear progress and opening of a window for talks between Iran and the world and are attempting to adopt measures against Islam and the Islamic Republic by mobilizing their forces,” he added.
Noting that the Zionists and terrorists are trying to create obstacles on the way of Iran’s progress, Moussavi Largani stressed that such terrorist attacks and hostilities will not affect the Iranian nation and instead will further strengthen the Iranians against their internal and foreign enemies, specially against the merceneries of Wahhabis and the Zionists.
14 Iranian border guards were killed and 6 more were injured during the terrorist attack by outlaws affiliated to Jeish al-Adl terrorist group in Saravan border region in Southeastern Iran in the early hours of October 26.
A day after the terrorist attack, the IRGC in a statement vowed to take action against terrorists after a group of outlaws 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.
