“An 11-member anti-revolutionary group affiliated to the outlawed Democrat Party sought to enter Iran but the intelligence officials of Kurdistan (province)’s IRGC force monitored them since the very first moment,” Commander of Kurdistan’s IRGC force Brigadier General Mohammad Hossein Rajabi told FNA on Tuesday.
Noting that the IRGC forces blocked the group’s move towards their destination and pushed them towards Kouhsalan district of Sarvabad region after 10 days of tracing, he said, “It was there that our forces killed all the 11 members of the team.”
Three local IRGC forces were also killed in clashes with the outlawed group.
Later today, IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour announced that Kaveh Javanmard, a commander of the anti-revolutionary group, was killed in the Western parts of Iran.
An IRGC statement also said on Sunday that the IRGC forces killed five terrorists in clashes near the city of Mahabad in West Azarbaijan province.
“During the last night clashes between the IRGC forces at Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada base and armed outlaws affiliated to the anti-revolutionary grouplets at Sarvabad bordering area and Mahabad general region, 5 mercenaries of the world arrogant powers, including Arash Menbari and Shouresh Menbari, commanders of the outlaws, were killed,” the statement by the IRGC’ Public Relations Department said.
“During the clashes, in addition to killing the armed outlaws, a considerable volume of weapons, ammunitions and equipment were also seized,” it added.

According to the statement, the clashes broke out near the village of Bengovin in the outskirts of Mahabad in Northwestern Iran.
Last week, the Iranian intelligence ministry announced that the country’s security forces have defused several suicide and terrorist attacks in different provinces, including Tehran.
“One of the biggest terrorist plots of Takfiri Wahhabi groups was thwarted” in recent days, the intelligence ministry said in a statement.
The statement added that the Takfiri terrorist groups had plotted imminent bombings in different parts of the country, including Tehran and a number of other provinces, during the religious ceremonies in the holy month of Ramadan.
The ministry ensured that all these have been foiled by the country’s security and intelligence officials.
“The terrorists have been apprehended and a number of ready-to-explode bombs and a large amount of explosive materials has been discovered and seized from them,” it said.
Given the continued field investigations in and outside the country and interrogation of terrorists that is currently underway, more information will be released in future, the statement added.
