World’s Evil-Doers Failed to Create Chaos in Iran: IRGC Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The deputy commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) highlighted the foreign support for recent violent protests in Iran and said all of the “evil-doers” tried to create insecurity in the Islamic Republic but their plots were foiled.
“In recent days, all the evil-doers and villains of the world have tried to create insecurity and chaos in the country,” Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi told reporters in Tehran on Friday.
However, he added, their attempts failed and the world witnessed one of the manifestations of the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
These plots have been hatched by the US and other evil-doers of the world, and some inside the country have also made forlorn attempts to back the plots, the commander went on to say.
“These were not the last attempts to hit the Islamic Revolution as the malicious moves and evil deeds will continue to exist,” Fadavi stated.
Following a hike in the price of gasoline last week, a number of Iranian cities saw sporadic protests that turned violent in some cases. A number of banks and government buildings were set ablaze.
Meanwhile, US State Secretary Mike Pompeo voiced support for the rioters who took advantage of the protests in a number of Iranian cities.
In an address on Sunday morning, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei warned that the sporadic protests and acts of vandalism in Iran would create insecurity.
Describing insecurity as the worst calamity for society, the Leader said that “all evil centers in the world” have mobilized efforts in recent days to encourage unrest in Iran.
Ayatollah Khamenei also called on the Iranian authorities to be careful that the rise in the price of fuel would not increase the price of other commodities.
The Leader also called on the people to separate themselves from a group of thugs who are encouraged by the foreign-based anti-Iranian front to foment insecurity.
