Tehran, Jan. 13 – In an apparent reference to the presence of US troops in Iraq, a senior Iranian Revolutionary Guard’s Corps (IRGC) official called for Iran to mobilize its troops against the “dangerous Zionist threat”.

Speaking to Revolutionary Guards and Iran’s Bassij (paramilitary police) forces in Khuzestan on Tuesday Deputy IRGC Commander Mohammad Baqer Zolqadr said, “The Islamic Republic will not tolerate American presence in the region”.

“The presence of this country(‘s forces) poses a dangerous threat to our nation’s interests”, Zolqadr said.

“The (Revolutionary) Guards cannot ignore their presence”, he added.

At the meeting another IRGC veteran Kazemini called for Revolutionary Guards to counter US presence.

“America wants to prevent the spread of Islamic revolution in Iraq so as to break the Shiite crescent in the region, especially in Iran, Iraq, and Lebanon”, he added.
