Iranian security forces foil sabotage acts in southeastern province

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian intelligence forces managed to arrest a group of saboteurs in the southeastern border city of Khash in Sistan and Balouchestan Province, the provincial police chief announced.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Brigadier General Hossein Rahimi said following security measures taken by intelligence forces of the country, a “sabotage group” was identified and arrested in Khash.

Members of the group, which had intended to sabotage and planned bomb attacks in public places of the city, were identified and arrested through the “full information supremacy” of the security forces.

He added that further details on the group’s targets will be announced in the near future.

Back in June, Iranian Police spokesman said his forces had killed five members of the Jaish-ul-Adl terrorist group in exchange of fire in Sistan and Balouchestan.

General Saeed Montazer-al-Mahdi said at the time that Police forces attacked a team of Jaish-ul-Adl terrorists in the provincial region of Khash, saying that a trooper has been also martyred.

A huge amount of ammunition has been confiscated from the militants, who had plans to get into the country to carry out terrorist attacks, he explained.

Jaish-ul-Adl has claimed responsibility for a number of criminal activities in Pakistan and Iran in recent years.
