IRGC Disbands 2 Terrorist Groups in Iran
“By hollow promises, Saudi Arabia attempted to make the terrorist groups, including Komala and the former Democrat group (Democratic Party of Iran’s Kurdistan (Hadka) affiliated to Komala party), to confront the Islamic Republic,” General Sharif said on Tuesday.
“Two 12-member and 16-member teams of Democrat who had entered Iran for sabotage operations were disbanded by the IRGC’s Ground Force and the intelligence ministry before they could do anything noteworthy,” he added.
Reports also said on Monday that several terrorists affiliated to the Komala Party (a terrorist group active in Kurdistan region) were captured by Iranian security forces.
According to Hawari Kurdistan news website, the terrorists are accused of killing three people in Kamyaran town of Iran’s Kurdistan province in the past two months.
The arrested terrorists have confessed to relations and cooperation with members of the disbanded terrorist group, the Democratic Party of Iran’s Kurdistan (Hadka), to carry out assassination of ordinary people in Kamyaran for their refusal to cooperate or finance the terrorist group.
The development came after Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee blasted Saudi Arabia for its destructive measures in the region, and said Riyadh is supporting and sending terrorists to Iran.
“The Saudi consulate in Northern Iraq helps the Komala Party (a terrorist group active in Kurdistan region) to interfere in Iran and Iraq’s affairs and sends terrorists to Iran but its plots have failed due to the vigilance of the revolutionary forces,” Rezayee said, addressing a forum in Alborz province near Tehran in July.
“The Saudis are the most evil government on Earth and are stirring turmoil in the region because of their insanity,” he added.
Also, last month, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces thwarted clashed with a terrorist team sent by PJAK (the Party for Free Life of Kurdistan) in the Western province of Kurdistan.
The members of the terrorist group who sought to enter Iran were identified by IRGC forces in Golchidar region of Marivan town in Kurdistan province and were forced to flee, leaving a number of their light and semi-heavy weapons behind.
According to the local officials, the terrorist group also launched an RPG attack against the IRGC forces but the RPG round failed to explode.
Commander of the IRGC Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour announced in June that his forces had killed a commander of PJAK terrorist group along with 4 of his comrades in Northwestern Iran.
“5 members of PJAK terrorist grouplet were killed in intelligence operations in the Northwestern parts of the country,” Pakpour told FNA.
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.
