Commander: Regional nations not to allow US military long-term presence

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior Iranian military commander slammed the presence of the US troops in the region under the pretext of fighting terrorism and said the people of the region will not allow long-term deployment of American troops.
Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri said terrorism can be countered thorough the cooperation of regional governments.

Elsewhere, the senior IRGC commander pointed to the recent terror attacks which killed four Iranian police officers in Saravan town, near the border with Pakistan and said if necessary, the Islamic Republic will take preemptive measures to contain such attacks.

Earlier this month, a car bomb attack on a police station in the border city left one police officer dead and three others injured, said Hedayatollah Mir Moradzehi, who represents the southeastern city of Saravan at the Iranian parliament.

The attack came a day after three other police forces were killed in a separate terrorist attack in the city.
