Following complicated intelligence activities across the border, a terrorist team affiliated with the Jaish ul-Adl group was identified and smashed by the intelligence forces in Sistan and Balouchestan on Sunday, the official website of the Intelligence Ministry quoted a local official as saying.
Elyas Narouyee, the ringleader of the terrorist cell who operated under the alias Zubeir, was killed during a clash between the terrorists and the intelligence forces, he said.
Narouyee was one of the elements that commanded numerous terrorist operations, including an attack on the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces in Nikshahr, in which two IRGC personnel were killed.
Terrorists, armed bandits, outlaws, and drug dealers regularly attack police forces and border guards in southeastern Iran.
The US government and some of its regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, along with their spy agencies, actively sponsor terror outfits that are seeking to undermine Iran’s security.
