The IRGC has underlined in its statement that conclusive evidence on the recent Ahvaz massacre has led to the terrorist base in eastern Syria guided and supported by America. The base operated under the evil objectives of White House state terrorism and the interests of the Zionist regime and regional reactionaries. Detailed planning and field information designated points were targeted with Zolfaghar and Ghiam ballistic missiles.
In its statement, the IRGC has given assurances that the security of the Iranian nation is the red line of its armed forces. It will continue its effort with the help of all other military, law enforcement, and intelligence personnel of the country in protecting Iran and securing its people. Its iron fist will always give a decisive answer to the enemy’s evil, foul plays.
