Twelve terrorist groups have been neutralized in Iran from March 20, 2013 until today, IRGC landforces commander Mohammad Pakpour said, Fars news agency reported.
Pakpour went on note that IRGC closely supervises the movements of PJAK groups, adding that Iran's western regions are secured.
PJAK is an offshoot of Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which regularly carries out cross-border raids along Iran's western borders with autonomous region of northern Iraq.
It is listed as a terrorist organization by many countries and international bodies.
The separatist group has been fighting to establish an autonomous state, or possibly a new world country, in the area after separating Kurdish regions from Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria.
Iranian intelligence and security officials have repeatedly complained that Washington provides military support and logistical aids for such anti-Iran terrorist groups.
