IRGC cmdr lashes out at US state secretary’s comments against Iranian general

Tehran, Nov 6, IRNA – IRGC commander Major-General Mohammad-Ali Jafari on Tuesday strongly criticized comments by US secretary of state against the commander of IRGC Quds Force, saying everyone knows it was the prudence of General Qassem Soleimani that rid the Islamic lands from takfiri terrorist groups.

Mike Pompeo had made the remarks against the Iranian general in a joint press conference with the US secretary of treasury to justify Washington’s fresh sanctions against Iran.

“If you don’t care about your own reputation, at least, care about the reputation of your country,” Jafari said, asking, “Why and to which end you are desperately raising these ridiculous words?”

“Is this you that have hands in the blood of the oppressed people of the region or General Soleimani who has spent and continues to spend his lifetime fighting terrorism and Daesh terrorists trained by you?”

General Jafari said that the US, the Zionist regime and Saudi Arabia are the main sponsors of Takfiri terrorism, and called on the US state secretary not to defame the US with his nonsense remarks anymore.
