“Stop meddling in the internal affairs of our country,” Maj. Gen. Hossein Salami said, addressing a meeting of Qom Islamic Seminary scholars, instructors and students held in Qom on Thursday to condemn recent unrest in Iran.
The senior commander referred to Saudi Arabia’s campaign against Iran, saying: “This is our warning. Your house is that of a spider (fragile). He has trusted Israel, which is on the brink of collapse and this is its destiny.”
Major General Salami also warned the Americans and British to end their measures against Iran.
“Whatever move you make against the Iranian nation, you will be hit several times harder,” he said.
The general referred to the successive defeats of the enemies against the Iranian people and said that in this last attempt they did not achieve their objectives either.
Earlier this month, the leader of the Islamic revolution, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei, said that the recent meager unrest in Iran was part of the enemy’s passive and amateurish plot in response to the progress and major initiatives of the great Iranian nation.
“The Iranian nation made big moves in a short period of time, which were 180 degrees opposite to the policies of global arrogance, and they were forced to react,” the Leader said, referring to the United States and other Western powers.
“In this context, through planning and spending money, they brought people, including some politicians from the United States, Europe and elsewhere, to the camp,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
Protests erupted following the death of Mahsa Amini, who collapsed at a police station and was pronounced dead days later at a Tehran hospital on September 16, first in her home province of Kurdistan and later in several cities, including the capital Tehran. .
Immediately after Amini’s death, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi ordered a thorough investigation into the case, leading to an official report released on Friday that said his death was caused by illness and not by alleged blows to the head. head or other vital body organs.
What began as peaceful protests took a violent turn after unruly protesters fatally attacked police officers and vandalized public property in several cities.
