IRNA – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in a statement on Thursday lambasted divisive moves and statements by certain internal elements, saying that safeguarding national security and institutionalizing Islamic Republic’s regional power are the outcome of its sincere guarding of the Islamic Revolution.
The historic memory of the Iranian nation attests to the fact that over the past 40 years, IRGC has played a crucial role in various fields ranging from countering counter-revolutionary elements across the country in the post-Revolution era and fighting in battlefields during the eight-year Iraqi imposed war up to creating epics in the fields of construction and giving a helping hand to the underprivileged people in deprived areas.
Today, IRGC has turned into a major and effective player in security equilibriums of West Asia under a risky and threatening situation faced by the Islamic Republic, the statement said.
The defeat of the Daesh and neutralization of the big plot of arrogant powers and Zionists to pursue proxy wars in Syria and Iraq and the illusion of spreading it to Iran is the product of the IRGC’s strategic measures, it said.
“If it had not been for IRGC’s resistance and intelligence of revolutionary and wise commander of Quds Force and defenders of holy shrine, today not only the region but also our dear homeland Iran would have been concentration center of Daech and infantries of the US and its Western and Arab allies,” the statement said.
But today, not only Daesh has collapsed but also its regional and international sponsors are searching for a way to save their face, despite the fact that the big plot is the outcome of their intelligence services’ strategies.
Describing security as the biggest blessing bestowed upon Iran and Iranians compared to other countries and nations, IRGC censured divisive measures and remarks by certain elements which are seeking to undermine the force, saying that IRGC has always complied with Islamic Revolution’s ideals as well as guidelines of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei and considers its honorable successes over the past decades indebted to the basic strategy.
