August 27, 2018

TEHRAN – In response to President Hassan Rouhani’s call for help in the face of economic problems, Basij Chief Gholamhossein Gheybparvar said on Sunday that the forces under his command are ready to help the government.

“You are not alone … Basij’s experts are at your service in medicine, industry, and other areas,” Gheybparvar said, urging the government to pave the way for the Basij forces to act as a panacea for the country’s problems.

He also called for decisive legal action against hoarders, describing them as similar to Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in being merciless toward people.
