Iran, Sept. 12, 2018 - The Iranian regime is plotting attacks outside of its own borders and will go the distance of carrying out these measures “beyond the seas,” according to a top military figure. Tehran will seek to conduct attacks on those the mullahs consider their "enemies," said former Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) chief Yahya Rahim Safavi.
Such statements are further highlighting the Iranian regime’s clandestine operations inside mainland United States and throughout Europe, especially after two operatives in Albania and a number of others, including a Vienna-based diplomat, in Germany, Belgium and France have been arrested on terrorism-related charges.
"We warn the enemies of the Islamic Revolution that if they make an aggression against the Islamic Iran, we will chase and punish them not only outside the borders but also beyond the seas," Safavi, a top aide to Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said on Monday in Tehran.
The remarks were made just days after the IRGC launched a missile strike in Iraq's Kurdistan region targeting Iranian Kurdish dissident groups. The Iranian regime has vowed further strikes in its western neighbor.
Tehran has claimed responsibility of conducting airstrikes during the weekend.
"The IRGC Aerospace Force's missile unit in cooperation with the IRGC Ground Force's drone unit targeted the headquarters and a meeting of the leaders of a filthy and criminal grouplet and a center for training affiliated terrorists with 7 short-range ground-to-ground missiles yesterday (Saturday)," the IRGC said in a statement provided by state-controlled press.
Safavi's rhetoric also comes after the arrest of two Iranian regime operatives in the United States facing charges of plotting terror attacks against various targets and gathering information about Iranian opposition members. U.S. officials are warning about Iranian regime espionage activities expanding beyond their borders and the mullahs’ regime gaining further capability of conducting terror attacks throughout the Middle East and even across the globe.
