Commander vows IRGC revenge on Takfiris for deadly terrorist attack

Sari, Feb 21, IRNA - Commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) said on Thursday that Iran will take its soldiers' revenge on Takfiri mercenaries in Pakistan following their deadly terrorist attack on the IRGC southeast of Iran recently.

Major General Qasem Soleimani said in a local ceremony that Takfiri terrorist elements, backed by Saudi Arabia, caused troubles for all the neighbors, including India, Afghanistan and other countries, due to taking hostile actions in Pakistan soil and Pakistan should understand it well.

Iran is a reliable neighbor for Pakistan and will not threaten the country, said Soleimani, adding that however, 'we will take harsh revenge on the Takfiri mercenaries, whose hands are stained with blood of our youth.'

A suicide attack on a bus, carrying the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) personnel, martyred 27 and wounded 13 others in southeastern Iran on February 12. A terrorist group, so-called Jeish al-Adl, affiliated to Al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the incident.
