Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province has been the scene of a number of terrorist attacks in recent years.

On January 1, an Iranian Sunni Basiji volunteer and a Shia teacher were killed in a terrorist attack in the provincial city of Sarbaz.

In late November 2014, three Iranian security forces were shot dead by unknown gunmen in the province.

Three Iranian police officers were also killed in early October last year when they came under attack at nighttime by armed bandits while on a mission in Saravan.
