Terrorists kill 4 Iranian security forces near Pakistan border
Four Iranian servicemen, including one from the IRGC, were killed by terrorists in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchistan.
Four Iranian security forces personnel, including one IRGC serviceman, were martyred in an armed clash with a group of terrorists in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchistan.
The IRGC's Ground Forces' base in southeastern Iran said the terrorist attack took place in the Saravan border region on Monday morning, described by a statement as an armed clash between terrorist groups and the forces of the IRGC Ground Force's 44th Brigade. Saravan is 40 km away from the border with Pakistan.
Among those killed were Mohammad Gudarzi, an IRGC second lieutenant, and three Basij members working in security: Rahim Bakhsh Parki, Hamidreza Abedi, and Mahmoud Nikkhahzadeh.
Terrorists, according to the statement, were forced to flee into Pakistan after the IRGC's heavy fire.
One of the roles of the IRGC is to protect the country’s northwestern and southeastern borders.
Last week, Iranian authorities broadcast the confessions of members of a terrorist group that tried to plant an explosive device in one of the streets of the city of Shiraz prior to the funeral ceremony for the martyrs of the Shah Cheragh shrine.
It is noteworthy that this operation was thwarted by the Iranian Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) in the Maali Abad area, in the city of Shiraz. The bomb was discovered by the IRGC before it was planted by the terrorists.
