IRGC Smashes Terrorist Cell in NW Iran, Killing 10 Militants
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force managed to disband a terrorist cell in Oshnavieh in Iran’s northwestern province of West Azarbaijan, killing at least 10 militants.
“Last night, a well-equipped terrorist cell affiliated with the global arrogance (the US) and foreign intelligence services that intended to infiltrate into the country from the border area of Oshnavieh to create insecurity and take acts of sabotage was ambushed by the brave warriors of the IRGC Ground Force’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base,” the IRGC Ground Force said in a statement on Saturday.
In the clash between the armed group and the IRGC forces, at least 10 terrorists were killed and a number of others were injured, it added.
In the operation, the IRGC forces captured a huge amount of ammunition, weapons, and communication equipment, according to the statement.
On July 20, anti-revolutionary terrorists attacked a border post of the IRGC Ground Force’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base in Iran’s western province of Kurdistan, killing 11 forces of the base.
In the clash with the terrorists, a number of terrorists were killed and a number of others suffered injuries and escaped the scene.
At the time, the IRGC said “a deadly and crushing revenge” awaits the terrorist and anti-revolutionary groups and their supporters for committing this crime.
The IRGC is tasked with protecting the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders.
