Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces have destroyed an 11-member gang of terrorists tied to an anti-Iran Kurdish terror outfit.

Fars News Agency reported the development on Tuesday, citing Brigadier General Mohammad Hossein Rajabi, the IRGC commander in the northwestern Iranian Kurdistan Province.

Rajabi described the members of the group as “counter-revolutionaries.” Such elements have been unsuccessfully working against Iran’s Islamic Revolution since its 1979 victory.

As soon as entering the country, he said, the group went under monitoring by the IRGC’s Kurdistan arm.

“The [IRGC] forces blocked the entry points and, subjugating the team to their will, led them toward the spot we desired,” the official said. “After ten days of following them, we led them to the Kouhsalan area of [the province’s] city of Sarvabad, where our forces annihilated all the 11 members.”

The operation also led to the martyrdom of three IRGC members.
