Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has dismantled a terrorist group, backed by Saudi Arabia and the United States, in the southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchestan. IRGC announced on Sunday its forces clashed with several members of the so-called Jaish ul-Adl terror group in Kouhak near the Pakistani border last week, killing five terrorists, Press TV reported.  It seized a cache of weapons, wireless equipment, night-vision cameras and three vehicles used by the terrorists. Jaish ul-Adl has killed a number of civilians and border guards. Iranian troops recently engaged them in a series of clashes and managed to thwart their terrorist activities on the border and inside the country. In June, a police officer and five Jaish ul-Adl members were killed in clashes in the Khash region of Sistan-Baluchestan. A month later, the terrorists killed four Iranian border guards and fled into neighboring Pakistan. Iranian security forces then arrested 40 terrorists who planned to carry out attacks through a tunnel they had dug at a depth of 20 meters.
