On Saturday, the terrorists tried to make their way into the police station in Zahedan, the capital of Iran’s Sistan and Baluchestan Province, but their attempt was abortive as Iranian security forces responded quickly.
Local officials said the attackers threw handmade grenades and engaged in a gunfight with the security forces.
In a statement, the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said four terrorists were involved in the attack, all of whom were killed in the operation.
Two members of the Iranian security staff also lost their lives in the clashes, the statement added.
Sistan and Baluchestan, which borders Pakistan, has witnessed many attacks targeting both civilians and security forces by terrorists who mainly sneak into the country from Pakistan.
On September 30, 2022, 35 people lost their lives as terrorists, taking advantage of a wave of unrest across Iran, launched armed attacks on several police stations and public places in Zahedan and set fire to an emergency health facility, and a bank, among other places there.
