“A terrorist team that was planning to carry out an act of sabotage and terrorism in the Saravan county was disbanded through the vigilance of the fighters of this base, the Quds Base’s public relations said in a statement released on Thursday.
The statement added that four terrorists were killed in the clash and a large number of weapons and ammunition were seized.
Saravan is located 347 km away to the southeast of Zahedan, the capital of Sistan and Baluchestan, close to the international border of Pakistan.
Iranian forces frequently engage in clashes with terrorist outfits or carry out operations against them near the country’s western and eastern borders.
Back in July, the country’s security forces disbanded a Takfiri terrorist group that sought to carry out simultaneous terrorist attacks in several provinces in cooperation with intelligence services of two European and regional countries.
Also in September, two terrorist outfits were disbanded in separate operations conducted by the Intelligence Ministry and police forces in Iran’s northwestern areas, during which two terrorists were killed, two others injured, and dozens arrested by the Iranian forces.
