IRGC Completely Dismantles Terrorist Group in Southeast Iran: Commander
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has managed to kill all members of a Takfiri terrorist group and completely dismantle it in a southeastern Iranian town, a senior IRGC commander said.
“A terrorist team, which we had engaged a few days ago in the town of Qasr-e Qand, was completely dismantled today after the killing of five more of its elements,” Commander of IRGC’s Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour told Fars news agency on Sunday.
He added that two members of the terrorist group had been killed after the operation launched in Qasr-e Qand town in the province of Sistan-and-Baluchestan on Thursday.
The remaining members had fled to nearby mountains, but were killed during clashes with the intelligence teams of the Qods Headquarters of the IRGC ground forces, he noted.
The senior IRGC commander said the identity of the terrorists has not been determined yet, adding, “The terrorists were members of the [so-called] Ansar al-Furqan group and their identities are under investigation.”
Pakpour emphasized that no IRGC member was killed or injured in the operations.
