Iran cripples Takfiris, turns into super power in West Asia: Military official

Qom, Feb 2, IRNA – Iran has been able to paralyze the terrorist groups of Takfiris by adopting a strategy which outguessed the groups, head of Civil Defense Organization said, adding that Iran at the present time is a super power in the West Asia region.

'Iran’s advisory presence in Syria averted war against the country and stopped members of terrorist group of Daesh (ISIS) from coming close to any Iranians,' Brigadier General Gholam-Reza Jalali said at a ceremony held in Qom, west of Tehran, in commemoration of martyrdom of 430 defenders of holy shrines on Friday evening.

The US cannot accept the fact that Iran has turned into a regional power and has got capabilities beyond the US imagination, Jalali said.

He further added that Iran, on the eve of the 40th anniversary of 1979 Islamic Revolution, designs all of its defense products and missile systems, the capability which has come from experiences obtained during and after Iraqi imposed war against Iran in 1980-88.

About Washington’s anti-Iran measures, the general said that Daesh (ISIS) was created by the United States with the aim of stopping the Islamic Revolution from growing.
