Terrorist killed as Iran’s IRGC thwarts attack in Khuzestan

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says a terrorist element has been killed when its forces thwarted an attack by two members of a terrorist group against military and police stations in the southwestern Khuzestan Province.

In a statement released on Sunday evening, the IRGC said that two members of a terror outfit linked to the so-called Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz (ASMLA) began firing at military and police stations in Shush city on Friday morning, leading to clashes with its forces.

According to the statement, the terrorists tried to enter the posts, but their attack was neutralized and both were injured and taken to hospital, one of whom died on the way.

The statement said their Kalashnikov assault rifles and ammunition were also confiscated.

In a statement on Sunday to honor Iran’s security forces, Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi lauded the forces’ efforts to provide security and stability in the country.

Alavi said the Iranian security forces foil all ploys and plots hatched by the hegemonic states, led by the US and the Israeli regime and their regional servants, against the Iranian people and government one by one.

“The Anonymous Soldiers’ Week is an opportunity to pay tribute to parts of the silent struggles of your anonymous soldiers and brave sons in the great fight and jihad (struggle),” he said.
