Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps () says its forces have wiped out a terrorist outfit in the country’s northwestern city of Sardasht, which is close to the Iran- border.

In a statement on Thursday, the IRGC Ground Force’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base explained that following reconnaissance and intelligence operations in Sardasht, an armed terrorist outfit that intended to infiltrate and carry out sabotage operations in Iran’s northwestern area was disbanded upon entering the country.

Sardasht is the main city of Sardasht County in Iran’s Azarbaijan Province. The city was attacked with chemical by Iraq under former Iraqi dictator during his imposed war against Iran in the 1980s.

The IRGC statement added that during the timely operation, some weapons and ammunition were confiscated, but it did not clarify whether there were any casualties.

Iranian forces frequently engage in clashes with terrorist outfits or carry out operations against them near the country’s western and eastern borders.

Last month, two terrorist outfits were disbanded in separate operations conducted by the Intelligence Ministry and forces in Iran’s northwestern areas, during which two terrorists were killed, two others , and dozens arrested by the Iranian forces.

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.
