TEHRAN - Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces identified and dismantled three terrorist and counterrevolutionary teams in the country’s Northwestern provinces of West Azarbaijan and Kurdestan 10 days before the Friday presidential election.
“During the election time, the enemy had been pursuing special plans and sought to carry out terrorist measures but it was faced with firm reaction from the IRGC’s Ground Force,” Commander of IRGC’s Ground Force Brigadier General Muhammad Pakpour said.
“Two terrorist and counterrevolutionary teams were dismantled in the cities of Oshnaviyeh and Baneh in West Azarbaijan and Kordestan provinces, respectively,” he added.
General Pakpour pointed out that another terrorist team that infiltrated into the country from the city of Sarvabad in Kordestan province was also destroyed.
The IRGC commander, however, emphasized that all border areas across the country are fully secured.
