Commander: US Attempting to Disturb Security to Undermine Islamic Revolution’s Influence

TEHRAN (FNA)- Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy General Alireza Tangsiri warned that the US and other enemies of Iran who have failed in their plots against the country are now trying to disturb security in the region to push back the Islamic Revolution.

“Today, our enemies led by the US have resorted to seeking excuses, fabricating deceitful and unreal images and undermining security to confront the influence of the Islamic Revolution,” Tangsiri said in Tehran on Tuesday.

He underlined the necessity for maintaining unity and increasing knowledge and wisdom against enemies’ plots which he said emerge in a new shape and form each day.

Many Iranian officials and military commanders have blamed the US and its regional allies for the recent insecurities in the countries neighboring Iran, specially in Iraq.

Last week, Commander of Iran’s Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi condemned the crimes committed by the terrorist Takfiri and Salafi groups in the region, and said these crimes are supported by the western states and certain oil-rich Arab countries.

“These (Takfiri) streams that introduce Shiites as infidels, issue decree for their killing, commit crimes and massacre innocent people under the pretext of (obeying) Islam and differences (between Shiite and Sunni Islam) in their fatwas (religious decrees) say nothing but lies,” Naqdi said in the Southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan on Wednesday.

He said that the Takfiri groups commit crimes in line with the ominous goals of the arrogant powers and obey the western and Israeli think tanks as they are supported by certain regional Arab countries’ petrodollars.

On June 10, the ISIL militants took control of Nineveh province, including its provincial capital Mosul, in a lightning advance, forcing “over 500,000 people in and around the city” to flee, according to Geneva-based International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The militants have vowed to continue their raid towards the capital Baghdad.

Nearly 1.5 million Iraqi citizens have volunteered to join the country’s armed forces to confront foreign-sponsored ISIL terrorists in their bid to destabilize and take over parts of the nation.

Iraqi authorities stated on Friday that people were rushing to recruitment centers to sign up for the fight against the Takfiri insurgents.

The volunteers consist of people from all ages and even include retired officers.

The development came after senior religious and political leaders called on the Iraqi nation to take up arms and defend their country against militants.
