Eleven terrorist attacks foiled in SE Iran in 6 months: IRGC commander

MASHAD, Khorassan Razavi Prov, Oct. 20 — The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has successfully foiled 11 cases of terrorist attacks in southeastern Iran in the first half of the Iranian calendar year (March 21-September 22, 2013), it was reported here Sunday.

Speaking in a local gathering in this eastern provincial capital city, the IRGC Commander Major General Mohammad Ali Ja’fari said agents of Iran’s enemies and counter-revolutionary groups were supposed to launch fatal terrorist and suicide attacks in southeast country in order to create insecurity.

“The US-led global arrogant powers would never stop hostility against Iran and are bent on inflicting damage on the country through various plots,” said the commander.

“Enemies thought they could attack Iran after striking Iraq and Afghanistan but they have failed to fulfill their hostile objectives.”

“Iran is one of the safest countries in region and in the world,” said the major general. (PNA/IRNA)
