Saying that Iran’s power in the region has forced the enemies to turn to other forms of war, including psychological war and soft power, General Hajizadeh called for paying special attention to such plots.
He said that today, the enemy is trying to put the Iranian nation under pressure by initiating an economic war through psychological tools and spreading lies, rumors and scandals, however, he added, our people have proved them wrong in the past forty years.
Over the past years, Iranian security forces and border guards have engaged in clashes with terror groups, many of whom cross the country's borders with Pakistan and Iraq to carry out attacks inside the country.
