Trans-Border Counter-Revolutionary Base Smashed by IRGC
TEHRAN (FNA)- Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Destroyed a base of counter-revolutionary groups in the Iraqi Kurdistan, Deputy Commander of Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base of the IRGC Brigadier General Esmayeel Khalilzadeh said on Monday, stressing that Iran’s security is the redline of the Armed Forces.

Khalilzadeh said that in response to the wicked moves of counter-revolutionary groups, the IRGC forces targeted the base of the criminal groups in the Iraqi Kurdistan region through artillery, missile and UAV operations in recent days.

"The enemies must know that the security of Iran and the people is our redline," he said.

“With the total destruction of terrorist groups in the Northwestern borders, the Americans have been disappointed in recent years,” the general noted, adding, “for the same reason, since last year, the agents of the Arrogant powers have put on their agenda to create insecurity on Iran’s borders.”

“During the operations of the last few days, the counter-revolutionary bases were completely destroyed and a number of terrorist groups that were stationed on the border between Turkey and Iran with the aim of creating insecurity were also targeted,” General Khalilzadeh went on to say.

He further said that the counter-revolutionary elements suffered heavy casualties and a large amount of equipment, including explosives, was discovered from the base.

Recently, the IRGC Ground Forces conducted a major assault on terrorist groups in regions near Iran's Northwestern borders.

The security operations had been conducted in the course of the past week, destroying strongholds of counter-revolutionary terror groups along the country’s Northwestern borders.

Drones, artillery fire and smart missiles were used in the operations, which killed and wounded a large number of key counter-revolutionary elements active in the area.

Huge amounts of weapons, ammunition and booby traps were confiscated from the terrorists.

The week-long operations, which were carried out under the supervision of IRGC Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour, was one of the largest of its kind.

Huge losses were inflicted on the counter-revolutionary groups and their bases were rendered inoperational.

The IRGC forces regularly engage in clashes with terrorists attempting to infiltrate the borders and carry out acts of sabotage across the country.
