Iranian Security Forces Disband Saudi-Affiliated Terrorist Cell
The terrorist team which was equipped with light and semi-heavy weapons and intended to carryout sabotage acts inside Iran was disbanded in the Western bordering areas of Sardasht city on Wednesday night through cooperation with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces.
Reports said earlier on Wednesday that ten terrorists of the outlawed Democrat Party were also killed in armed clashes with the Iranian border guards in the Western province of Kurdistan.
The terrorists who were trying to sneak into the country through the Western Iranian borders in the village of Baneh and Khalfi in Sardasht region, sought to foment insecurity in Iran’s Kurdistan province.
Based on the latest information, 10 terrorists of the outlawed group were killed during the clashes which started on Tuesday night and lasted for several hours.
Early July, the IRGC forces had also disbanded an anti-revolutionary cell in Western Iran which plotted to sneak into the country for sabotage acts, killing all its 11 members.
“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 at the time.
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.
IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour announced at the time that Kaveh Javanmard, a commander of the anti-revolutionary group, was killed in the Western parts of Iran.
