TEHRAN – Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Wednesday vowed a “tough response” against the terrorists who abducted a number of Iranian border guards near the Pakistani border on Monday night.

Speaking at a ceremony in province of Semnan, Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said the abductors, knowing they could not achieve their goal as long as the forces were conscious, kidnapped them after making them unconscious, Tasnim reported.

Jafari added the goal of Iran’s enemies, especially the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia, is to bring chaos in Iran, but Iranian forces foil most of their plans.
