“This (Iranian) nation will never bow to tyranny, injustice and humiliation, and will inflict humiliation on its enemies and ill-wishers,” Shamkhani said in a Monday meeting with the top officials the country’s automotive industry.
“The era of hit and run is over at the international era,” he said, adding that the Islamic Republic will harshly respond to “any hostile move” in any area against the country.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the security official pointed to a recent missile attack by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) against terrorists in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region and said Iran would adopt the same approach to any foreign threat.
In a statement on Sunday, the IRGC confirmed that it had launched a missile attack a day earlier against a center in the Iraqi Kurdistan Region which was used for training anti-Iran terrorists and hosted a meeting of terrorist leaders.
Over the past months, terrorist groups affiliated with global arrogance have taken hostile moves from inside the Iraqi Kurdistan Region against Iran’s border areas, the statement said, adding that several terrorist teams have been dispatched to Iran to carry out acts of sabotage and upset security in Iran’s western provinces of West Azerbaijan, Kurdistan and Kermanshah.
Thanks to the IRGC’s vigilance and preparedness, a number of operations were conducted over the past weeks which dealt heavy blows to the terrorists in Marivan and Kamyaran border regions, it said.
Heads of the terrorist groups, however, did not heed the serious warnings from the Iraqi Kurdistan Region’s authorities about Iran’s resolve to destroy their bases and about the need for an end to their aggressive and terrorist activities, the statement added.
Authentic reports indicate that the center of plot against the Islamic Republic has been destroyed in the missile attack and tens of leaders and major elements of the terrorist group have been killed and injured, it went on to say.
