Al-Ahwaz terrorist group claims responsibility for attack on Iran police

Tasnim – The notorious al-Ahwaz terrorist group claimed responsibility for an attack on a police patrol car in Iran’s southwestern port of Bandar Imam Khomeini that killed two cops.

The terrorist and separatist al-Ahwaz group has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s fatal attack on Iranian patrolmen in Bandar Imam Khomeini, a police official of the Khuzestan Province announced Sunday.

Gunmen opened fire on a police patrol car in the port city in the wee hours of Saturday, killing two cops.

The patrol car’s driver, a soldier serving his compulsory military service, was martyred when the gunmen riddled the vehicle with AK-47 shots, and a first lieutenant of the police was pronounced dead later after being taken to the hospital.
