Mirjaveh terror attackers to be punished: IRGC Cmdr

IRNA – The terrorists who attacked Mirjaveh, Sistan-Baluchestan Province, southeastern Iran, are going to be severely punished, said the Commander of Imam Hossein Comprehensive University on Wednesday.

‘After the Islamic Revolution, the enemies tried hard to drift Iranian ethnic and religious groups apart,’ said Brigadier-General Ali Fazli in the Ninth Conference of Martyrs of Unity and Security.

General Fazli also said that enemies made attacks in Tabriz, Kordestan, Sistan-Baluchestan, Kermanshah, and Gonbad-e Kavous, which were all defeated.

Fourteen Basij (volunteer forces) and border guard forces were abducted by terrorists on Tuesday morning in Iran’s Sistan-Baluchestan border with Pakistan.

Following the incident, the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) said in a statement that Pakistan is expected to fight terrorists and outlaws who have nested along the borders and are propped up by some reactionary and terrorist regional counties.

Measures to arrest the terrorists and to free the kidnapped are high on the agenda for the defense and security forces deployed in the border areas, said the statement.

The terrorist act is believed to be an inside job, added the IRGC statement.

Terrorist attacks are from time to time conducted in Iran-Pakistan border.
