Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces have dismantles a hostile counterrevolutionary group in the country’s northwestern province of East Azarbaijan.
The group identified as ‘Hoboot Iran’ (Fall of Iran) was destroyed by the intelligence forces of the Islamic Revolutions Guards Corps, Xinhua news agency quoted the state TV report as saying.
The group, which has sought to unite opposition groups against the country since early 2018, “was funded by some Western countries and Saudi Arabia”, according to the report.
