Islamist militant group Jaish Al-Adl reported on Friday from its official twitter account an assault on an Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) contingent on the outskirts of the Jakigour region in Sistan and Baluchistan province which borders Pakistan.
The terrorist group, which Iran accuses Saudi Arabia of funding, claimed the attack killed several soldiers and destroyed two cars. The state-runs Fars News confirmed the attack reporting the death of a soldier and the wounding of three others.
The Iran-Pakistan border has long been a hotbed of armed activity as Al-Qaeda, Taliban, and other insurgent groups find safehaven in its vast rugged terrain. With all that, the Iranian military has succeeded in securing most of the region after decades of operations.
