Iranian authorities have announced that between Monday night and Tuesday morning, special forces killed four suspected jihadists and arrested six more. According to officials, these men were either fighters for the Islamic State group or fighters with links to the group.

This is not the first time that Iran has announced that it has arrested jihadists on its soil, but it is the first time that citizens have caught such operations on camera. Several photos and videos published on social media show the clashes between the alleged terrorists and the authorities, as well as the aftermath.
