Islamic Revolution Guards Corps smashed a terrorist outfit in a northwestern Iranian border area, a senior IRGC commander announced. “A terrorist team, which sought to enter the country with the purpose of conducting acts of sabotage and terror, was dismantled by IRGC’s Ground Force in a border area in [the Iranian province of] West Azarbaijan,” Commander of IRGC’s Ground Force Lieutenant General Mohammad Pakpour said on Sunday, Press TV reported. “During the clashes, IRGC forces managed to take timely action and killed two members of the terrorist team,” he added. Pakpour said four terrorists were also injured and some ammunition and military equipment were confiscated. Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since the twin terrorist attacks in Tehran, which killed 18 people and injured over 50 others. On June 7, gunmen mounted almost simultaneous assaults on Iran’s Parliament and the mausoleum of the late founder of Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini. The self-styled Islamic State terrorist group claimed responsibility for the assaults.
