Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jaafari said on Tuesday that Iran successfully turned all challenges and threats posed against the country into opportunities.
Addressing the Iranian Majlis (parliament) as a guest of honor on Tuesday, Jaafari stressed on the Islamic Republic’s constructive role in the region as well as challenges and opportunities, Iranian media reported.
“This year all witnessed annihilation of Daesh and other Takfiri groups who were against Islam in Iraq and Syria,” Jaafari told the Iranian Majlis.
“This year the Resistance was quite successful in the region,” the Iranian general said, referring to the shooting down of an Israeli F-16 while conducting air strike against Syria earlier in February.
Meanwhile, Jaafari noted that the role of Iranian people in suppressing recent unrest in the country was of prime importance.
People in Iraq and Syria turned all threats posed by the enemies into opportunities, the Iranian general underlined.
