IRGC commanders said on Friday that TEHRAN Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps IRGC has increased military presence near the western and northwestern borders of the country to deal with separatist threats.

The commander of the IRGC Ground Force, Mohammad Pakpour, said by the official IRNA news agency, that IRGC units and special forces have been deployed to prevent the infiltration of terrorists affiliated with separatist groups in northern Iraq and the smuggling of weapons into the country.

Pakpour said that the forces would confront insurgent insurgency caused by evil-doers and anti-Iranian separatist terrorist groups in the northwest of the country.

The IRGC recently used artillery and drones to attack what it called the positions of Iranian separatists based in Iraq's northern Kurdistan region.
