Two IRGC Forces Killed in Shootout with Terrorists

Two Iranian security forces have been killed in a shootout with terrorists in the southeast of the country along the Pakistani border.

The incident happened in the town of Saravan in Sistan and Baluchestan province near the border with Pakistan.

The gun battle occurred Saturday night when IRGC commando Mohsen Naqibi and local Basij member Abdolkhaleq Derazehi were shot dead, said the Public Relations Department of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Two Iranian security forces were also wounded.

Iran has repeatedly called on Pakistan to tighten control along the common border and fight off the terrorist groups, reminding the Islamabad government that the burden of ensuring security along the 900-km joint border has always fallen on Tehran alone.
