IRGC disbands terrorist cell in southeast Iran, kills 4
The Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has killed four members of a terrorist group during clashes in the country's southeastern border with Pakistan.
In a statement on Friday, the IRGC's Quds Force said the clashes with terrorists occurred near the Iranian city of Saravan in Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province.
It added that the terrorist team, affiliated to the global arrogance, sought to enter the country from borders of a neighboring country with the intent of carrying out "destructive and anti-security measures."
According to the statement, three terrorists were also wounded in the clashes.
Over the past years, Iranian security forces and border guards have engaged in clashes with terror groups, many of whom cross the country's borders with Pakistan and Iraq to carry out attacks inside the country.
Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi said on Monday the country's security forces have disbanded two terrorist teams in the western parts of Iran.
Speaking to the IRIB news agency, Alavi added that the terrorist outfits were affiliated to hostile countries and arrested through intelligence operations.
