IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Aug 14, IRNA -- Iran is to give crushing response to takfiri terrorist group Daesh, Commander of the Ground Force of Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said.

General Pakpour made the remarks Monday in a ceremony held to commemorate martyred defenders of the Holy Shrine.

He pointed to beheading of military advisor Mohsen Hojajji by Daesh in Syria as a sensitive era in Islamic Revolution.

Today Iran has extended its border to outside the country, General Pakpour said.

Despite many threats by enemies supported by Saudis and the global arrogance, Iran is enjoying good security, he added.

Unlike US, Iran entered Iran and Syria for advisory purposes and the the permit of both countries, General Pakpour said.

The commemoration ceremony was held with the attendance of top Iranian military and political
officials in Tehran.

Following a US strike against the Iraqi Popular Forces (Hashd al-Shaabi), Daesh (ISIS terrorist group) seized the opportunity to attack the Syrian troops deployed along the borders with Iraq in which Mohsen Hojajji, an Iranian military advisor was taken hostage by the terrorist group elements and beheaded later on camera.
