Domestic Security Proved Enemies WrongDomestic Security Proved Enemies Wrong

A top military commander said the Islamic Republic has been able to ensure security both within and outside its borders. Speaking on Saturday, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, said enemies had been attempting ever since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 to portray Iran as incapable of ensuring its own security, Press TV reported. However, he said, Iran has attained “sustainable, popular security”, which he said was the biggest achievement of the Islamic Republic after the revolution. The IRGC commander also said the Israeli and Saudi regimes were working feverishly to undermine the Islamic Republic’s security and were going out of their way to set up liaisons and contacts to achieve that purpose.  “All such attempts, however, have been foiled. Today, the sphere of [our] security has exceeded the country’s borders,” he said. As a case in point, Jafari cited Iran’s successful advisory military support to the counterterrorism operations of the Syrian military, which on Thursday managed to recapture the Arab country’s second biggest city, Aleppo, from foreign-backed militants. The defeat suffered by the militants on the Aleppo battlefront was “a great one inflicted on the enemies, the most important of them being the US and Israel”, Jafari said.
