TEHRAN (Iran News) –The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has strongly warned against any foreign interference in the country’s domestic affairs, saying the enemies will receive a severe blow should they make any move against the Iranian nation.
Major General Hossein Salami raised the alarm as he addressed a gathering of scholars, instructors and students of the Qom Islamic Seminary in the holy city on Thursday, which was held in condemnation of recent riots in Iran.
Violent protests broke out across the country following the death of a 22-year-old woman of Kurdish descent, named Mahsa Amini, in hospital three days after she collapsed at a police station in Tehran despite resuscitation efforts and intensive medical care.
Amini’s death on September 16 was swiftly exploited by Western-based media outlets and Saudi-backed television networks, which claimed that she had been “murdered” by police forces without providing any convincing evidence.
“Stop meddling in our country’s internal affairs,” Salami said in a stern warning to Iran’s enemies.
“I say to the Saudi regime to take refuge in [your] glass palaces. This is our warning. Your house is made of a spider web. You have relied on Israel, which is collapsing, and this is your fate,” the chief commander of the IRGC said in reference to Saudi Arabia’s anti-Iran campaign during the recent riots.
Salami warned the U.S. and the UK against any anti-Iran moves, saying, “Americans and the British should also know and stop doing this. You have not been able to implement the sanctions, you hit the ships, we also hit them, whatever move you make against the Iranian nation, you will receive blows several times.”
The top general pointed to the enemies’ back-to-back defeats in the face of the Iranian people and said they failed to achieve their goals in their latest attempts as well.
He added that the foes’ attempts to close the universities are aimed at preventing Iran’s scientific momentum.
Referring to the recent unrest in Iran, General Salaami said that the enemies want to stop Iran’s growing movement, hence they tried to close the universities to constitute a halt to the country’s scientific momentum.
He highlighted that closing universities and schools is what the U.S. wants because they know knowledge has grown from these places and Iran is underway of achieving great human accomplishments.
This time, the arrogance put its target in the highest position and tried to bring down the Islamic System, but they once again experienced a massive failure, he underlined.
