Commander Hails IRGC’s Success to Provide Border Security
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Full security prevails along Iran’s borders thanks to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ presence and successful operations in recent years, IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said.
The ongoing security conditions at Iran’s borderlines are incomparable with the past, when terrorist and anti-Revolution elements were being fought off inside the country’s territories, the commander said at a cultural ceremony in Tehran on Thursday.
Since 2011, when Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei ordered a plan for sustainable security at the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders, the IRGC forces tightened grip on those areas, constructed many border posts, and forced intruders to stay out of the country, he added.
The commander further pointed to the IRGC Ground Force’s advisory missions in Syria, stressing that Iran would have to deal with the enemies at the borders if it did not confront the terrorists in Syria and Iraq today via advisory missions.
