The brigade has played a large role in combating the Kurdish insurgency in the country's northwest, suffering more than a handful of casualties, including high-ranking commanders.  In particular, the brigade took part in the summer/fall-2011 offensive against PJAK that led to a ceasefire that has remained in place ever since.

As of November 2013, the brigade is commanded by Brig. Gen. 2nd-Class Yunis Amiri.  The deputy commander is Col. Mazaheri. 
The location of the brigade's headquarters or primary garrison is unknown. Although nothing has been reported regarding the composition of the brigade per se, a great deal has been written about the Basij units subordinate to the brigade. In fact, the degree to which the reporting characterizes Basij and IRGC-GF forces as one-in-the-same underlines the effects of General Jafari's 2008 reorganization, which formally folded the Basij into the IRGC-GF, and which was bolstered following the 1388/2009 'sedition'.
At least six Basij combat-battalions have been identified in the province, though the total number likely total eight or more, corresponding to each of the province's counties. These include the 481st, 483rd, 484th, 485th, 487th, and 488th battalions.
The 481st is identified as an 'Imam Hussein'-type battalion.  Both the 483rd and 485th are also 'Imam Hussein'-types; the former is based in Dana county.  The 484th is based in Basht county and is currently commanded by Maj. Gerami.  The 487th is an unknown type and is based in the Dehdasht.  The 488th is an unknown type and is based in Charam county.

These 'Imam Hussein'-type battalions are supplemented by 'Beit al-Moqdas'-type battalions also assigned to each county.  
These battalions are nominally organized under 'areas' determined by county, which are further broken down into 'zones' and 'bases', which gives the appearance of independent command chain, but since these are commanded by IRGC officers, any separation is negligible.
