Leader calls for finding ‘updated’ ways to fend off enemies’ infiltration

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei emphasized the increasing importance of passive defense in the face of the new threats against the country, urging Passive Defense Organization to find updated ways to fight the enemies’ infiltration.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting on Sunday with the head and senior officials of Iran's Passive Defense Organization.

The Leader said, “In the face of sophisticated methods used by enemies’ in their onslaught, the passive defense must be totally vigilant and serious,” Press TV reported.

The Leader added that Iran's Passive Defense Organization must find scientific, accurate, updated and comprehensive ways to fend off all kinds of infiltration by enemies in the country.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged officials in all sectors to pay due attention to the importance of passive defense, adding, “If the country’s officials do not understand the importance of this issue and passive defense is not developed in a suitable manner, the country would be exposed to threats, which would at times cause irreparable damage.

“Therefore, officials in various sectors of the country – both military sectors and civil sectors – must cooperate with the passive defense [organization] in full and in any way necessary.”

In a decree in September 2015, Ayatollah Khamenei appointed Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali as head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization.
