Terrorist attacks not effective on Iran deterrence power: Commander

Tehran, Feb 22, IRNA – Terrorist attacks such as the recent attack on Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) forces cannot affect Iran's deterrence power, senior commander said on Friday.

Such terrorist incidents are very small and inconsiderable and not effective on Islamic Republic of Iran's deterrence power, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami said.

In the meantime, he noted that Iran gives a firm response to terrorists behind the recent attack on IRGC forces.

Iran will not only take revenge on terrorists but it will also track their supporters, the commander noted.

He said that the scale of Iran's revenge will not be limited to targeting a small terrorist group.

A suicide attack on a bus, carrying the IRGC personnel, martyred 28 and wounded 12 others in southeastern Iran on February 12. A terrorist group, so-called Jeish al-Adl, affiliated to Al-Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the incident.

Head of the Justice Department of Sistan-Baluchestan Province said on Thursday that eight have been arrested in connection with the terrorist incident.
