IRGC dismantles terrorist group in northwest Iran

 The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) has dismantled a terrorist group in an operation in the northwestern province of West Azerbaijan.

IRGC ground forces launched the operation after receiving information on Wednesday that a terrorist team of four had infiltrated the Chaldoran region of the province and had killed two locals.

The IRGC forces hunted down the terrorists and killed them in a shootout. The forces also retrieved weapons, ammunition, and communication equipment from the terrorists.

In August, the IRGC dismantled another terror group in West Azerbaijan province that had sought to enter Iran with the purpose of conducting acts of sabotage and terror.

Iran has arrested dozens of terrorists since twin terrorist attacks in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on June 7, when 17 people were killed and 50 others injured.
