Commander: Iran Uncovers Nearly All Terrorist Groups

“Most terrorist groups in Iran are uncovered early on, with the remaining ones are discovered and disbanded before they can carry out any operations,” Commander of the Iranian Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohamad Reza Naqdi said on Monday.

In relevant remarks on Sunday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said Iran enjoys the highest level of security among world countries, adding that his forces have managed to foil as many as 11 suicide attack plots in southeastern parts of the country in recent months.

“Today, the Islamic Iran is the safest country in the world, and our country’s borders also enjoy incomparable (level of) security,” Jafari said.

He also referred to the IRGC's ability to identify and thwart a series of plots aimed at destabilizing the country’s border areas, saying his forces succeeded to foil as many as 11 suicide attack plots "hatched by hostile and opposition groups" in southeast Iran during the current Iranian year (started on March 21, 2013).
