Iran kills terrorist group in southeastern province
Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has dismantled a Takfiri terrorist group in the southeastern province of Sistan-and-Baluchestan, killing and wounding a number of the terrorists.
The IRGC's Qods Headquarters dispatched its units to Qasr-e Qand town after obtaining information about the presence of a Takfiri terrorist group in the area and engaged in fighting with the group in mountainous areas on Thursday noon, the IRGC said in a Thursday statement.
“During the anti-terror operation, the IRGC's Qods Headquarters fighters destroyed a vehicle laden with 600 kilograms of explosives, seized five bombs ready to be used in suicide attacks, 700 kilograms of explosives, tens of thousands of bullets and a number of weapons and ammunition,” PressTV cited the statement as saying.
This came in the wake of last week’s terror attacks in the Iranian capital Tehran, which killed at least 17 people and injured over 50 others. On June 7, gunmen mounted almost simultaneous assaults on Iran’s parliament and the Mausoleum of the late Founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini.
