Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined the positive results of a method the IRGC has devised for ensuring sustainable security along Iran’s borders by getting help from local residents and developing anti-poverty strategies.

The IRGC plans to engage locals in the process of ensuring security and combating poverty in border areas have proved to be a success, a clear sign of which is that Iranians in western border provinces enjoy “an acceptable” level of safety despite all attempts by the enemy and terrorist groups, the top general said on Wednesday during a visit to IRGC operational units in the provinces of Kurdestan and West Azarbaijan, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Jafari explained that one of the IRGC’s top priorities has been to involve local residents for ensuring security, fighting poverty and creating jobs in border regions.
