IRAN — Mohammad Ali Jafary, the commander of Spah Pasdaran (Iranian Revolutionary Guards), has admitted for the first time the strong discontents of a group of Spah’s members from the government. Apart from this confession from an official member of the government, Jafary also stated that “making these people satisfied is better than punishing them”.
According to Fars news, an official Iranian news agency, Mohammad Ali Jafary in respond to a question regarding not punishing the Spah’s dissenting members alleged: “these dissenting members have admitted that they were wrong, therefore this is better than punishing them or firing them from their position.”
The Jafary’s confession is important from this dimension that Jafary is an official member of the Iranian government and admits some divergences between the countries officials.
