Iran Fully Prepared to Confront Terrorist Threats
Iran’s Police Chief Brigadier General Hossein Ashtari on Tuesday highlighted the country’s readiness to counter any terrorist threat,including those in the cyberspace.
The Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group has recently launched a Persian language channel in Telegram messenger.
In reaction to the move, General Ashtari told reporters that Iran’s security and disciplinary forces have good intelligence supremacy over the cyberspace and its threats.
A number of those behind channels launched for terrorist purposes have been identified, he said, adding that most of them reside outside the country.
If anyone inside the country gets engaged in these channels and networks, they will first receive cautions, and if they intentionally continue their activities, they will face harsh responses, the Iranian police chief warned.
“Our Armed Forces are totally prepared to strongly respond to any terrorist threat,” he further reiterated.
The Daesh terrorist group is known for recruiting young people from around the world by the extensive use of social media.
