IRGC Commander Warns Terrorists of Tehran's Strong Retaliation

TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Wednesday warned that the Iranian armed forces would give a crushing response to the terrorists who staged the Sunday attack against a number of IRGC commanders in southeastern Iran.

"The elements behind this terrorist attack should know that we will chase them house to house and will punish them for their shameful and devilish acts," IRGC Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Hossein Salami said at a funeral procession extended in the northeastern city of Bojnourd for General Rajabali Mohammadzadeh, the IRGC Commander of Sistan and Balouchestan province who was martyred in the Sunday terrorist attack.

Salami also vowed that the IRCG will make the terrorists repent their blind action.

Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (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 in the city of Sarbaz in Sistan and Balouchestan province which killed 42 wounded 28 others.

Meantime, Commander of IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour on Tuesday urged Iranian officials to issue the required orders for his troops to attack the Jundollah terrorist group in Pakistan.

"This is not acceptable to us that terrorists enter Iran from a neighboring country and stage terrorist actions," Pakpour said.
