Iran said today it has strengthened its border guard units deployed at Ilam and Kermanshah provinces, bordering Iraq, to counter any attack by the Islamic State militants who control parts of Diyala near the Iranian border.
“The Islamic Republic border guards deployed at the borders use state-of-the art tools and optical equipment to monitor the smallest moves along the border,” said Brig. Gen. Lotfali Pakbaz, the commander of border guards in Ilam province.
“The guards are watching the country’s borders so carefully that there has not remain any chance for the Takfiri terrorist groups, including the Islamic State, to pose any threat for Iran,” Gen. Pakbaz added. (Fars News Agency, 4 October)
