In another indication of the deteriorating relationship between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the Islamic Republic has accused the Kingdom of masterminding terror attacks against it by training and funding terror organizations.

In a press statement Sunday, the Iranian Revolutionary Guards' Land Force Commander Mohammad Packpour said that Iran has recently arrested terrorists that confessed their affiliation with both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"Striving to destabilize Iran, Saudi Arabia and the UAE train terrorist organizations to carry out attacks in the country," Packpour argued.

"The military preparedness of the Revolutionary Guards has prevented terror attacks from taking place in Iran. We have intelligence about these terror groups and we will foil each move in its beginning," Packpour added.

In addition, Packpour revealed that the Revolutionary Guards will conduct a special maneuver this week in the south-eastern region of the Islamic Republic, an area inhibited mainly by Sunni residents.

According to the Iranian commander, the maneuver aims at maintaining the military preparedness of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards to confront major security threats, such as terror attacks.

Packpour also emphasized the importance of the role performed by the Revolutionary Guards in Syria, stating that "if we do not fight the terrorists in Syria, we will have to fight them on our land."
