TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour provided details of a Monday operation in southeast of Iran that smashed a terrorist team.

The commander said three terrorists were killed, two were injured and a number of others were arrested in the operation around Qasr-e Qand, located in the southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan.

The IRGC forces inflicted heavy damages on the terrorists and confiscated large amount of arms and equipment, including 200 kilograms of explosives, detonators, ammunition for AK-47 and machine guns, and electronic devices.
