IRGC Hails Judiciary Rulings

No Mercy to Thugs and Terrorists

TEHRAN – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Monday hailed the judiciary for its firm dealing with a number of rioters affiliated with the Zionist spy agency, saying no mercy will be shown to rioters, thugs and terrorists serving the country’s enemies.
The force made the remark in a statement in which it thanked judicial officials for putting four main members of the gang of mobsters related to the Zionist intelligence service to death.
The IRGC added that the sentences handed down to rioters cooperating with the occupying regime Israel proved the judiciary’s “sensitivity and seriousness” in administering justice and safeguarding the security of citizens.
Demanding all state bodies to pay more attention to peaceful protests and people’s rightful demands, the IRGC said, “Security, intelligence, police and Basij forces ... will not hesitate in dealing firmly and powerfully with those who threaten the social security and order ... including rioters, armed thugs, and terrorists working at the behest of the enemies, and will show them no mercy.”
It added that the handling of cases related to destructive, terrorist and secessionist activates that target the country’ security as well as people’s lives and property, and have inflicted heavy and irreparable losses on the nation and the country is now a public demand, which should be attended to by the judicial officials.
Protests broke out in several Iranian cities after the September 16 death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Iranian woman who died at hospital three days after she collapsed at a police station in Tehran. An investigation attributed her death to her medical condition, dismissing allegations that she had been beaten by police forces.
Despite Iranian officials’ clarification on the circumstances surrounding Amini’s death, violent street riots followed her death and finally culminated in attacks on security officers and acts of vandalism against public property and sanctities.
In a statement published on Saturday, the Security Council of Iran’s interior ministry said the enemy waged a hybrid war against the Islamic Republic to weaken national solidarity and hinder the country’s progress, stressing that some 200 people have lost their lives in the riots sparked by separatist and terrorist groups since their outbreak in September.
It said rioters conducted acts of vandalism, violence and insecurity in Iran and paved the way for separatist and terrorist groups to infiltrate into the country and carry out brutal attacks against innocent people.
