IRGC dismantles an armed cell in Southwest Khuzestan
IRGC Brigadier General Yadullah Kashawar says the dismantled armed cell included "two Iranian nationals and a foreigner," adding that IRGC confiscated a huge cache of illicit weapons.
Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) announced on Monday the dismantling of an armed cell comprised of three members in southwest Khuzestan.
On his account, Brigadier General Yadullah Kashawar, commander of Unit 39 in Bushehr, stated that the cell members were arrested while attempting to infiltrate the country across the border.
Kashawar went on to say that the dismantled armed cell included "two Iranian nationals and a foreigner," adding that IRGC confiscated a huge cache of illicit weapons.
In the same context, Iran revealed that it had exposed a large cyber-espionage network that was run by an Israeli intelligence agency in West Azarbaijan on Sunday.
A few hours later, the IRGC officially announced the targeting of an Israeli "strategic center" in Iraq with missiles, after Kurdish authorities in northern Iraq reported cross-border missile fire.
IRGC underscored that "the security and peace of the Islamic homeland is the red line of the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran and they will not allow anyone to threaten or attack it."
