Today, Iran threatened to chase counterrevolutionaries across the border into Pakistan and Turkey!
The Commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Brigadier General Rahim Safavi, threatened on Wednesday to hunt down armed bandits and counterrevolutionaries across the border if they have to.
Three commanders of PEJAK terrorist group were killed in Sero region in Orumiyeh, West Azerbaijan Province, by the Islamic Republic armed forces Tuesday, he said.
According to the report, the IRGC Commander said that the US is funding the terrorists groups to act against Iran and the Zionists are training the Iranian counterrevolutionary bandits in northern Iraq.
