IRGC Initiates Short, Long-Term Plans to Deal with Terrorists

TEHRAN (FNA)- A top commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps announced here on Monday that the IRGC has initiated short and long-term plans to confront terrorist elements, specially those who carried out a deadly bomb attack in southeastern Iran last week.

"The IRGC has short and long term plans to deal with the terrorist elements in charge of the recent incident, but we cannot announce them due to security considerations," Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour told FNA.

A suicide bomber last Sunday blew himself as participants headed to a unity conference between Shiite and Sunni groups in the city of Sarbaz, in Sistan and Balouchestan.

Lieutenant Commander of IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Nourali Shoushtari, Sistan and Balouchestan province's IRGC Commander General Rajabali Mohammadzadeh, Iranshahr Corps commander, Sarbaz Corps commander and Amiralmoemenin Brigade commander were among the martyrs of the terrorist attack.

The Pakistan-based terrorist group Jundollah, headed by Abdolmalek Rigi, has claimed responsibility for the deadly attack.

Pakpour reminded that the terrorist elements are stationed in the neighboring countries, and added, "IRGC has tracked them but these are the neighboring states should act against them."

He called on the neighboring states to take action against the Jundollah terrorist group based on the intelligence provided by the IRGC.

"The IRGC confronts the terrorists within (Iran's) borders, but beyond our borders the IRGC just transfers intelligence reports and information to the relevant country and it is that given country which should take action and confront the terrorists," the commander reiterated.
