2 killed in terrorist attack in Iran’s Southeast

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Unknown assailants killed 2 people in Iran’s southeastern province of Sistan and Balouchestan on Thursday evening.

Provincial police chief General Hossein Rahimi told the Tasnim News Agency that unknown gunmen have shot dead 2 people in the village of Nasirabad, near the town of Qasr-e Qand.

One of the victims was a teacher in the village, named Issa Shahraki.

The terrorist attack also claimed the life of Adham Sabouri, a staffer at the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) office in the village.

The development comes less than a week after the IRGC lost three personnel in an attack launched by armed outlaws in the same province.

The three were martyred during a mission to assist the local people and ensure security in the region, the Quds Base of the IRGC Ground Force announced in a statement at the time.

Also in December 2013, three other IRGC members were killed in the southeastern province after their vehicle was detonated by a booby trap bomb planted by outlaws and drug-traffickers.
