Commander: PJAK Commander among Terrorists Killed in Northwestern Iran
“5 members of PJAK terrorist grouplet were killed in intelligence operations in the Northwestern parts of the country,” Pakpour told FNA on Monday.
Stressing that no members of the terrorist group could escape from the region, he said, “One of the slain terrorists was a PJAK commander in the region.”
Pakpour said that during the operations, a number of light weapons were seized by the IRGC forces, adding that the terrorist group was behind the killing of several people in the region.
The IRGC announced in a statement earlier today that “a 5-member terrorist group affiliated to the PJAK was disbanded in Sardasht region in the Northwestern parts of the country in the precise intelligence and reconnaissance operations of the IRGC Ground Force”.
All the 5 members of the terrorist cell were killed during the operations conducted by the IRGC forces at Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada base, it added.
Noting that a large number of weapons, ammunition and documents have been seized from the terrorist group, the statement said that two of the slain terrorists were the culprits who martyred two Basiji (volunteer) forces last month as well as an engineer helping the people in the region with constructional works.
