Brigadier General Abedin Khorram, the new governor of Eastern Azerbaijan province and former Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Commander found himself in a peculiar spot on Saturday as an angry man slapped him during his inauguration on Saturday.
Khorram was later approached by present officials and clerics and consoled. Attendees also chanted in his support after the incident, which is an unusual breach of security in the Islamic Republic of Iran during a ceremony attended by the country’s interior minister.
“I did not know the person who disrespected me. Unfortunately, he did something that disrupted the order of our meeting. Well, I have given up my right in this regard and I will be stronger in my work,” said Khorram after the attack.
The motive for the attack in Iran’s Eastern Azerbaijan province has remained unclear. It targeted, however, a new provincial governor who once served in the country’s IRGC and had been kidnapped at one point by militants in Syria.

SOT, Brigadier General Abedin Khorram, New governor of Eastern Azerbaijan province and former IRGC Commander (Farsi): “Today, during the [inauguration] ceremony of honouring and introducing the governor of Eastern Azerbaijan, something happened that upset everyone. Well, I did not know the person who disrespected me. Unfortunately, he did something that disrupted the order of our meeting. Well, I have given up my right in this regard and I will be stronger in my work. I will try hard in order to continue [my work based on] the orders, guidelines, and duties that I have in a people-oriented and justice-oriented government, God willing.”
