The Zagroz Eagels, named after the Zagroz Mountain Chain, is a Special Forces Unit operating in eastern (Iranian) Kurdistan. In a statement released today, the Zagroz Eagels announced that they killed a high ranking commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) by the name of Akbari and six other IRGC soldiers in the city of Saghez.
