The terrorist group engaged in armed confrontation with Iranian security forces on Wednesday, during which they used a local woman as a human shield and killed three Iranian security forces, the statement added. One terrorist was killed and several others were injured during the operation. A number of their weapons and explosives as well as a notebook containing guidelines for creating unrest were seized, according to the statement.
