TEHRAN -- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has dealt a heavy blow to three terrorist and counter-revolutionary groups in the mountainous areas of northwestern Iran, the IRGC announced in a statement issued on Sunday.

IRGC Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said, “The IRGC forces have inflicted a deadly blow on the terrorist and counter-revolutionary groups in northwestern Iran.”
In an operation in the area, the IRGC pounded members of the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK), the Kurdish Democratic Party, and the Komoleh Party, Pakpour stated.
Twenty-six members of the terrorist parties were killed in the operation, but fortunately, none of the IRGC forces were killed or injured, he explained.
He said that the IRGC will try to establish security and peace in the region and will respond harshly to those who threaten the security of the region and the people of the area.
He went on to say that the counter-revolutionary and terrorist groups should be aware that there is no secure place for them in the country, especially in western and northwestern Iran.
Iran’s security forces and ordinary citizens monitor the groups in the region and will deal with them harshly, he added
