Commander Heidari told a crowd of reporters that Iranian forces have ” an active presence in the border areas to counter enemies’ potential threats.”
Actually its more than that!
Reports suggest Iran has tens of thousands of troops ready to strike anywhere along the border region with Iraq.
These Iranian Army units are being supported by armor and tank units, in addition to close air support. Not including special forces units.
In addition Iran has special scout troops on motorcycles and ATV specially equipped with anti tank weapons and grenade launchers.
One Iranian ground force commander, speaking on the condition that we not identify him by name, rank and unit said “Iran is posed like a cobra to strike US backed ISIS terrorists a lethal and crippling blow. We are just waiting the command from our leaders…”
Late in July, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan underlined preparedness of the country’s military, security and intelligence forces to thwart any destabilizing threat to Iran’s borders, particularly in the West.
The commander underscored that Iranian armed forces “are watching the country’s borders so carefully that there has not remained any chance for the Takfiri terrorist groups, including the ISIL, to pose any threat to Iran.”
“The ISIL is no threat to our country and the Iraqi nation will eradicate the group by themselves,” he stressed, adding members of the ISIL group are ‘employed mercenaries’ (by the US and certain Gulf States) who are present in Iraq and Syria to destabilize peace and tranquility in the region.
The ISIL is operating in Northern and Northwestern Iraq near the country’s borders with Turkey and Syria. A few hundred kilometers to their East is the border with Iran’s Western and Northwestern provinces.
Who is responsible for this mess? You may be surprised to know the US helped trained and equip ISIS fighters.
In talking with one middle east expert on this situation of ISIS it was suggested that “Iran is more than willing o clean up America’s mess with respect to ISIS. Sadly American pride sometimes gets in the way and they refuse to ask for help.”
