IRGC chief: 5 out of 12 Iranian border guards freed in Pakistan
Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps Major General Mohammad-Ali Jaafari says Pakistan-based terrorists have released 5 of the 12 Iranian border guards kidnapped last month.
He said the released forces had been handed over to the Pakistani authorities who wanted us to take them in but the Islamic Republic did not admit, calling on the Pakistani government to do what it can to secure the release of all the 12 kidnapped soldiers.
Jafari added that Pakistan has promised to secure their release and hopefully they will return home as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, the IRGC chief said "no arrogant power like the US and even more stronger than the Americans could not overcome the Islamic Republic of Iran as long as the culture of martyrdom enjoys such a credibility in the nation's logic."
The forty-year history of the 1979 Islamic Revolution is filled with the US consecutive defeats when dealing with the Iranian people’s determination and the victory over the hegemonic system, the commander said.
Jafari lauded Iranian martyrs as the source of spiritual life and prosperity to the society.
