Elite fighters from Iran are being sent to infiltrate Europe and the United States, a military leader in the Middle East state has reportedly said.
Salar Abnoush, a senior figure in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) claims military personnel will be operating ‘very soon’, thwarting plots against the Islamic Republic.
He told state-controlled media: ‘The whole world should know that the IRGC will be in the US and Europe very soon.’
IRGC operatives will be sent out on the orders of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, it has been claimed.
Abnoush continued, Fox News reports: ‘The IRGC is [the] strong guardian of the Islamic Republic.
IRGC operatives will be sent out on the orders of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, it has been claimed
‘The Fedayeen of Velayat [fighting force] are under the order of Iran’s Supreme leader.
‘Defending and protecting the Velayat [the Supreme Leader] has no border and limit.’
The military leader claimed the step was being taken in order to protect the regime against efforts to destroy it.
He said: ‘Our enemies have several projects to destroy our Islamic revolution, and have waged three wars against us to execute their plans against our Islamic Republic.
‘The IRGC has defeated enemies in several fronts. The enemy surrendered and accepted to negotiate with us.
‘And now all of our problems are being solved and our country is becoming stronger in all fronts.
‘Some believe the holy defense ended. They are wrong; the holy defense continues, and today, it is more complicated than before.’
Saeed Ghasseminejad, an expert from the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told the Washington Free Beacon: ‘If we look at Iran’s previous terror attacks and assassination campaign around the world, such a statement is alarming.
‘The Islamic Republic has killed hundreds of Iranians and non-Iranians around the world in a coordinated campaign of terror.
‘Iran may decide to restart the project now that many western companies are going to Iran and Iran feels its action in Europe may not be punished strongly.’
