RNA – Speaking at the beginning of today’s meeting of the Assembly of Experts, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati expressed appreciation for the timely, decisive and courageous action of the Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) in response to the September 22nd terrorist attack in the southwestern Iranian city Ahvaz.
On October 1st, the IRGC rained surface-to surface ballistic missiles on the strongholds of the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group in Syria eastern governorate of Dayr al-Zawr. The surface-to-surface missiles killed and injured a large number of Takfiri terrorists and ringleaders of the September 22nd attack.
The secretary of the Guardian Council argued that the strong response to terrorists operating near American bases showed that no aggressor against Iran’s security was immune to attack and stressed, “This process, while deterring and securing the country, was a serious warning to all terrorists and their supporters.”
In other remarks, Ayatollah Jannati welcomed the decreasing exchange rate and the price of gold coins over the past few days and said, “The effect of falling prices on the daily lives of the people must come to light and the general needs of the people, especially food products, must be provided at affordable prices, while our export process must not be damaged.”
In conclusion, His Eminence pointed out some of the problems facing the dear and hardworking truck drivers of Iran and added, “The non-political protest of the truck drivers who are calling for higher wages in the face of the increased costs of equipment and spare parts must be investigated and the government is obliged to quickly plan and make a decision in regard to this issue.”
