Iran urges France to take se­ri­ous mea­sures to pro­tect its mis­sions

Iran Daily - - National -

Iran urged France to take “nec­es­sary and se­ri­ous mea­sures” to pro­tect Iran’s diplo­matic mis­sions in the coun­try af­ter the Ira­nian Em­bassy in Paris came un­der at­tack by alleged sup­port­ers of Iraq-based anti-iran ter­ror­ists, IRNA re­ported.

Ira­nian me­dia out­lets de­scribed the at­tack­ers as sup­port­ers of the Ko­mala Party of Ira­nian Kur­destan, which has been en­gaged in anti-tehran ter­ror­ist acts in the past decades.

The at­tack­ers des­e­crated the Ira­nian flag and hurled stones and dif­fer­ent ob­jects at the build­ing, caus­ing dam­age, but did not man­age to en­ter the premises, Press TV re­ported.

“Un­for­tu­nately, the French po­lice did not ar­rive as ex­pected on the scene on time, although the as­sailants were mem­bers of a ter­ror­ist or­ga­ni­za­tion,” Iran’s For­eign Min­istry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Satur­day.

Iran urged France to pun­ish the at­tack­ers af­ter some of them were ar­rested by po­lice.

The in­ci­dent came days af­ter the Is­lamic Revo­lu­tion Guards Corps (IRGC) fired mis­siles at ter­ror­ist com­man­ders in Iraq’s Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

On Sun­day, the IRCG con­firmed that it had fired seven short-range mis­siles at a gath­er­ing of ter­ror­ist com­man­ders in the Iraqi re­gion.

The IRGC is on a con­stant watch for at­tempts by Iraq-based ter­ror­ists to in­fil­trate into Iran for acts of ter­ror and sab­o­tage.

The IRCG forces have en­gaged the ter­ror­ists in west­ern bor­ders on count­less oc­ca­sions, nip­ping nu­mer­ous ter­ror plots in the bud, ar­rest­ing ter­ror el­e­ments, and seiz­ing their weaponry and equip­ment.
