Iran Denies Detention Of IRGC Commanders

TEHRAN, Iran, June 12 (NNN-IRNA) – Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), dismissed as “fake” the reports that a number of its top commanders have either fled the country, or have been arrested, Tehran Times daily reported, on Tuesday.

Ramazan Sharif, spokesman for the IRGC, described the recent news as part of a series of anti-Iran measures, which began with the U.S. designation of the IRGC as a “foreign terrorist organisation” in early April.

The U.S. move has united Iranians, in support of the IRGC, Sharif was quoted as saying.– NNN-IRNA
