Greater Tehran as Focal Point
IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali “Aziz” Jafari said today in Tehran that the Islamic Revolution is in “a very critical and decisive situation.” Gen. Jafari attributed the situation to “rapid spread” of the Islamic revolution throughout the world, with “Greater Tehran as its focal point.” Jafari emphasized the need for forces loyal to the revolution to engage its enemies “not just on the battlefields,” but also in “soft domains” which are “the biggest threats.”
“Today, the situation of the Islamic revolution is of a very critical and decisive situation, because the Islamic revolution is rapidly spreading throughout the world, with Greater Tehran as its focal point, and it needs revolutionary, capable and religious forces who are knowledgeable of the current situation in the world,” Gen. Jafari said.
“We should not think that the presence of (our revolutionary forces) in defense of (our) revolution would be limited to the battlefield. Today, the biggest threats against the revolution come from “soft domains,” Jafari added. (Fars News Agency, 3 August)
