The commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Aerospace Force highlighted the good security situation in Iran and said the money spent by the Saudi, Emirati, and Israeli regimes on fomenting insecurity in the Islamic Republic has been wasted.
In a speech in the central province of Isfahan on Tuesday, Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh pointed to the enemies’ plots against Iran and said over the past 40 years since the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the enemies have used various methods, including military and psychological warfare against Iran.
“The windfall money of the Saudis, the UAE, and the Zionist regime spent on causing insecuirty in the country (Iran) has been completely ineffective,” the commander said.
He went on to say that this year, 77 enemy operations have been thwarted on the western and northwestern borders of the country alone.
In recent years, the Middle East has been plagued with Takfiri terrorist groups like Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), which are believed to have been created and supported by the West and some regional Arab countries.
However, Iran is considered by many experts as the “island of stability” in a region which faces many security challenges.
In August 2016, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the strong security in Iran despite crises and insecurity in the region.
“Thank God and through the appreciated efforts and endeavors of the military and security forces, the country enjoys a strong security shield while regional countries are filled with incidents and insecurity,” the Leader said.
