Terrorists have shot martyred five members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in a clash in northwestern
Iran, media reports say.
“Five members of the Revolutionary Guard were killed in fighting with counter-revolutionaries in Baneh (City)… two others were wounded and taken to hospital,” the Fars News Agency said on Thursday, citing sources in the elite military force.
The Baneh region is on the border with Iraq’s Kurdish region.
In April 2012, terrorists killed four Revolutionary Guards in the same region.
