IRGC Chief: False Accusations Show Iran’s Power
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran has become so powerful that the enemies point a finger of blame at the Islamic Republic after every incident, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said after the US accused Iran of involvement in recent attacks on Saudi oil installations.
The Islamic Republic has gained such power that the enemies have to falsely put the blame on Iran for every incident, Major General Hossein Salami said in the northeastern province of North Khorasan on Thursday.
The enemies have been left with no option in the battlefield, as Iran has closed all roads for hostile infiltration, the commander said, adding that the Iranian military forces are protecting the country’s frontiers so vigilantly that there is no concern about “small or big enemies.”
Salami also highlighted the IRGC’s plans to resolve internal problems and promote welfare of the Iranian people, saying such a responsibility now is similar to fighting a war.
The Yemeni forces on Saturday launched drone attacks on two plants at the heart of Saudi Arabia's oil industry, including the world's biggest petroleum processing facility.
The US has accused Iran of involvement in the attack, alleging that a number of cruise missiles have been fired from Iran at the Saudi targets. Iran vehemently denies the claim.
