IRGC Arrests 2 Saudi-Funded Terrorists IRGC Arrests 2 Saudi-Funded Terrorists

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps forces have arrested two terrorists funded by Saudi Arabia in the southeastern Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan.

IRGC forces detained the terrorists in the Kalehgan region in the city of Saravan, near the border with Pakistan, after they crossed into the country. According to a statement by IRGC, the terrorists held Pakistani nationality and had received intelligence assistance from spy agencies of enemy states, Press TV reported.

IRGC forces confiscated a large quantity of weapons and ammunition, and also found and defused two bombs in the Pakistani terrorists' hideout that they planned to explode in crowded places in Iran.

The two were detained promptly in a covert operation before the terrorists could find an opportunity to make any move.

The men are members of a terrorist group that is hostile to the Islamic Republic and had entered Iran with the purpose of carrying out acts of sabotage and terrorism.

The terrorists confessed that they were planning to conduct acts of sabotage. Earlier in September, the IRGC announced that it has dismantled a terrorist group backed by Saudi Arabia and the United States in Sistan-Baluchestan Province.

IRGC forces clashed with several members of the so-called Jaish ul-Adl terror group in Kouhak near the Pakistani border and killed five 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, terrorists killed four Iranian borders guards and fled into neighboring Pakistan.
