‘Takfiris can pose no threat to Iran’


A top Iranian commander says Takfiri terrorists operating in some Middle Eastern states cannot pose any security threat to Iran as the country’s Armed Forces are fully ready to counter all acts of aggression.

According to Press TV, on Tuesday, Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan hailed the security situation in Iran’s western and southern border areas and said the country’s armed forces were closely monitoring all regional threats against the Islamic Republic.

Pourdastan said the Islamic establishment does not consider the terrorist groups wreaking havoc on some regional countries as a security threat against Iranian soil, adding “We attach no significance to them.”

The top general added Iranian Armed Forces are fully prepared to nip all threats in the bud should such terror groups attempt to carry out any act of aggression against the Islamic Republic.

The extremist militants from the ISIL terrorist group have large swathes of Syria’s northern territory under control. The group also sent its members into neighboring Iraq in June and captured large parts of land there.
