Daesh cannot get near Iran’s borders even in mind: Commander

Hamedan, Aug 17, Iranian armed forces' show of power proved that the terrorist group of Daesh (ISIS) is incapable to get close to Iran's borders even by conceiving it in mind, Iran's military official announced here on Tuesday.

'Readiness of the Iranian forces in borders is at the excellent level,' Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Army, said in a meeting held in this western Iranian province with local military officials.

He further stressed that the intelligence forces should be well aware of and vigilant for the conditions in and out of the country in order not to be blindsided.

Pourdastan visited capabilities of a garrison here and reviewed a group of soldiers.
