Press TV – A senior Iranian general says the country will definitely avenge the recent terrorist attack on IRGC forces in Sistan and Baluchestan, but the revenge will not be limited to “a bunch of terrorists”.
Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the lieutenant commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), told IRNA on Friday that the recent deadly attack on Iranian border guards will not be left unpunished.
“We cannot disclose the way in which we will respond to the terrorists, but no act will remain unanswered,” he said.
“The scale of Iran’s revenge is not limited to clashes with four terrorists; we rather will track the terrorists and find who they are linked to,” the top general said.
“Our responses are strong, and those who receive it will get familiar with them,” General Salami warned.
The top commander also slammed the “hostile” behaviors of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) which Iran says have masterminded the Zahedan attack, but at the same time noted that such terror attacks are too trivial to undermine Iran’s deterrence power.
“We seek to defeat big powers, and such incidents are too small for us.”
The IRGC’s chief commander earlier warned Saudi Arabia and the UAE that they could face retaliatory measures for supporting terrorists on behalf of the US and Israel.
General Mohammad Ali Jafari on Saturday stressed that Iran would give a “decisive” response to the Wednesday terrorist attack which killed 27 IRGC border guards in Zahedan-Khash road.
“The patience that the establishment once exercised against conspiracies and reactionary regimes in the region, especially Saudi Arabia and the UAE which carry out these acts on orders from the US and the Zionist regime, will be different and we will definitely take reparative measures,” he said.
