FNA – A female member of the ISIL terrorist group was captured at Bazargan border crossing in the Northwestern province of West Azarbaijan.
The woman was identified by Iran’s passport police at Bazargan border as to be an ISIL member.
The Law Enforcement Police said in a statement on Monday that all crossings at Bazargan border are precisely monitored by the passport police’s security controls and vigilance and no terrorist or their family members will be allowed to enter the country.
The Iranian security forces stationed at the bordering areas have dismantled several terrorist groups in the past few months.
The Iranian intelligence ministry announced in February that the country’s security forces had arrested members of two terrorist groups affiliated to the ISIL in the Western province of Kurdistan who intended to assassinate Sunni clerics in Iran.
According to Intelligence Ministry statement, the intelligence forces managed to identify and detain 13 terrorists, affiliated to the ISIL grouplet, who were divided in two groups to plant bombs, kill people and assassinate certain Iranian Sunni clerics in Iran.
A number of the captured terrorists had undergone military trainings abroad and wanted to carry out terrorist acts under the guidance of one of the ISIL’s military operations ringleaders.
Remote-controlled bombs, arms and ammunitions were discovered from the terrorists.
