IRGC Disbands Human-Trafficking Gang in Northwestern Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces dismantled a team which trafficked girls from Iran to other countries.

The organized gang was disbanded thanks to the IRGC forces' intelligence superiority and through conducting multi-layered intelligence operations in the Northwestern province of West Azerbaijan, an informed source said on Saturday.

The organized team had contacts with certain neighboring states and acted as part of a network of prostitution that also promoted homosexuality.

In another development, ringleaders of a group which attempted to foment insecurity in Iran were arrested in Alborz province near Tehran by the IRGC forces.

The IRGC’s Imam Hassan Mojtaba base in Alborz Province announced in a statement on Saturday that its forces had taken into custody the ringleaders of the so-called White Uprising Movement, who had extensively planned to disrupt public security and order, carry out acts of sabotage, and stir riots in the province and the country.

They distributed night letters in the streets, deceived some naive people and hired thugs to implement their schemes, it further said.

“From the beginning, all their actions and movements were monitored thanks to the vigilance of intelligence and security forces, and in a timely and revolutionary action, they were arrested and sent to prison during a complex operation by the unknown soldiers of Imam Hassan Mojtaba base,” the statement read.

“All elements affiliated to the White Uprising have been identified by the province's intelligence community, and the movements of dissident groups are being closely monitored,” it added.

The statement underlined that the security of the people is the IRGC forces' redline and that they will spare no efforts to maintain tranquility.
