Iran's army has killed 6 militants who had crossed the border from Iraq intended to carry out terrorist activities. Government media said Sunday on behalf of Brig Gen Mohammed Pakpor, premier of ground force of Revolutionary Guards, that the army has killed 6 militants who entered the country from Iraq.
IRNA's Sunday report quotes Gen. Mohammad Pakpour, chief of the Guard's ground forces, as saying that his forces also injured another three suspects in the incident Saturday.
The terrorists intended to carry out terrorist activities in Iran. He said that 3 militants were injured in the skirmishes in Oshnavieh and Sarvabad in northwestern Iran.
Weapons and explosives have been recovered from them. Revolutionary Guards issued a statement on Saturday that nine terrorists were killed in an encounter with the army this Friday.
General Pakpur did not provide any information about the identities of the terrorists killed but he called them word "terrorists", which the Guards generally use to mean Sunni Muslim militants were involved in the spread of disturbances in Shia-dominated Iran.
