During his visit to Air Defense Units and investigation of the air defense readiness status in the northwest of the country, Major General Seyyed Abdolrahim Mousavi emphasized maintaining the security of the people, especially the border residents.
“Air defense units have been strengthened in the northwestern region of the country and will be added if needed,” he said, adding, “The tranquility of the people is of special importance to us.”
“Respect for the territorial integrity of countries and the protection of official international borders are among our known principles and we will not tolerate any changes for territorial integrity and oppose them,” Gen. Mousavi said.
Regarding the presence of Takfiri members in the region, he added, “Takfiri terrorists, ISIL and the Zionists are rejected elements all over the world, and their presence everywhere causes hatred and insecurity.”
“Our forces will deal severely with the presence of these elements near our borders,” he stressed.
