TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces have attacked a team of terrorists in the northwesternmost corner of Iran, killing one and seizing equipment from them after they crossed the border, a statement said.
According to the public relations department of the IRGC’s Hamze Sayyid al-Shohada Base, its servicemen clashed with an anti-Revolution team of terrorists affiliated with the “global arrogance” who had plans to infiltrate into the country from Chaldoran region in the northwestern province of West Azarbaijan on Sunday night.
The IRGC troops killed one of the terrorists, injured two, and captured another one, while two Iranian forces suffered minor injuries in the exchange of fire, the statement added.
A considerable amount of weapons, communication equipment and ammunition has been seized from the terrorists, it added.

The IRGC is tasked with protecting the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders.
