Iran arrests terrorists behind Saravan attack

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A senior IRGC commander said perpetrators of terrorist attacks in October in Iran’s southeastern town of Saravan, in which four police officers were killed, have been detained.

“The elements behind the blast have been arrested but their nationalities have not been identified yet,” Brigadier General Abdollah Araqi told the Tasnim News Agency on Tuesday.

He said the name of the terrorist group and the number of its members has been identified, but at the same time noted that he cannot announce further details because investigation is underway into the case.

The senior commander also said that in addition to sabotage and terrorist activities, the terrorist group was also involved in other crimes, such as theft.

Back in October 9, a car bomb attack on a border outpost in the Aspich district in the border city of Saravan left one police officer dead and three others injured.

The attack came a day after three other police forces were killed in a separate terrorist attack in the city.

The Pakistani-based Jaish-ul-Adl terrorist group has already carried out terrorist activities in the area.
