TEHRAN (Iran News) – In a report released on Friday the IRGC announced that an armed hooligan named Mehrab Shah-Bakhsh and two others who martyred two IRG Quds Force servicemen on December 26 have been killed in a “precise operation”, Sepah News reported.

The IRGC is tasked with protecting the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders.
