Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says it has disbanded a team of terrorists in the country’s northwestern province of West Azarbaijan, killing two of its members.
The IRGC announced in a statement that servicemen from its Hamzeh Seyyed al-Shuhada base had carried out the security operation on Tuesday.
The terrorists were ambushed as they were trying to infiltrate the country from the province’s Chaldoran County. Two terrorists were killed in the clashes and several others were wounded, the statement noted.
Two IRGC servicemen lost their lives during the operation as well.
According to the statement, a considerable amount of weapons, ammunition, and communication equipment were also seized.
A manhunt is underway to arrest the remnants of the terrorist team.
On June 24, IRGC stated that it had dismantled a four-member gang of terrorists in the same region.
Forces from Hamzeh Seyyed al-Shuhada base engaged in clashes with members of the terror outfit, sponsored by the global arrogance, killing one terrorist and injuring two others in the process. The fourth terrorist was captured.
