Counter-Terror Police Exercises Underway

Tehran Police chief Brigadier General Hossein Sajedinia announced that the police have been holding anti-terrorism operations in the capital in recent days to enhance preparedness for countering any possible threats.
“The exercises are aimed at boosting the police’s preparedness in dealing with all kinds of possible threat,” Sajedinia was quoted as saying by Tasnim News Agency on Saturday.
“Special units, the Rescue Unit, bomb disposal units and plainclothes officers were deployed in the exercises,” he explained.
“The anti-terrorism exercises and measures will continue.”
Sajedinia noted that the deployment of such forces in Tehran is only a “preventive measure” to counter any type of threat.
“The presence of police forces in the city boosts citizens’ sense of security,” he said, stressing that people are content with such exercises.
The exercises come in the wake of increasing threats by terrorist groups such as the so-called Islamic State militants throughout the region and the world.
Last week, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari highlighted the country’s full intelligence control over the activities of terrorist groups.
