President: Security Iran’s Red Line

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Describing security of Iran as a red line which the administration and the nation won’t allow anyone to cross, President Ebrahim Raisi said hostile attempts to undermine security in Iran will get nowhere.

“Security is a red line for the government and nation of the Islamic Republic of Iran and we will never allow the enemy’s scheme to undermine this national and valuable asset to be realized,” Raisi said on Sunday.

His remarks came after earlier the same day, he lauded the Iranian people’s massive presence at funerals held for the victims of a recent terrorist attack at a holy shrine in southern Iran.

Addressing a cabinet meeting, Iran’s president said what happened during the attack in the city of Shiraz was the materialization of a part of the enemy’s plan to sow insecurity and disrupt people’s life through unrest, rioting and assassination, Press TV reported.

He added that the main message of people’s presence on the streets in Shiraz and other Iranian cities was not only to condemn the terrorist attack on the Shah-e Cheragh shrine, but also to highlight the need to decisively confront the terrorists in order to safeguard the country’s security.

Fifteen pilgrims, including a woman and two children, lost their lives and at least 40 others were wounded after a heavily-armed terrorist attacked the popular Shah-e Cheragh shrine in Shiraz, Fars Province, on Wednesday just before the evening prayers.

The Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) Takfiri terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
