February 24, 2018

TEHRAN – Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said on Thursday that security forces will harshly counter violent “law-breakers” to prevent a recurrence of the recent mob attack in the Pasdaran neighborhood in northern Tehran.

In a message, General Baqeri offered his condolences on the martyrdom of the three police forces and two Basij forces in a mob attack in northern Tehran, Tasnim reported.

Describing the attack on police by members of a cult group as “brutal”, he stressed that the Armed Forces, including the “brave police and selfless Basij forces”, will not permit the “rioters and law-breakers” to create such disturbances again.
