IRGC Resumes Operations against PJAK Terrorists after 1-Month Deadline.
According to a report issued by the public relations office of the IRGC Ground Force on Saturday, the new operations are underway at Iran's Northwestern borders.
Senior Iranian political and military officials have always underlined that the IRGC will continue operations against the terrorist group, adding that the military operations against the PJAK terrorists are aimed at defending Iran's territorial integrity.
In July, the IRGC arrested several teams of PJAK, who intended to infiltrate Iran to stage terrorist operations in the country.
Iran also deployed about 5,000 military forces in the Northwestern parts of the country along its joint border with the Iraqi Kurdistan region.
During the operations, the IRGC forces killed, injured and arrested tens of terrorists and destroyed their headquarters in the bordering areas of Alvatan near Sardasht city in Northwestern Iran.
PJAK, a militant Kurdish nationalist group with bases in the mountainous regions of Northern Iraq, has been carrying out numerous attacks in Western Iran, Southern Turkey and the Northeastern parts of Syria where the Kurdish populations live.
The separatist group has been fighting to establish an autonomous state, or possibly a new world country, in the area after separating Kurdish regions from Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria.
Iranian intelligence and security officials have repeatedly complained that Washington provides military support and logistical aids for such anti-Iran terrorist groups.
