Terrorist Attack in Southeastern Iran Kills A Number of IRGC Forces

"A bus carrying a number of Islamic Republic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) personnel was blown up by a suicide bombing operation in the Chanali area of Khash-Zahedan road", IRNA news reported.

He didn't specify those countries, but Tehran has often accused UAE and Saudi Arabia in the past of supporting Sunni militant groups inside Iran, an accusation both countries have denied.

Jundallah, a pro-Sunni group still active in the region on Iran's border with Pakistan, claimed responsibility for that attack.

It later issued a statement saying a vehicle loaded with explosives targeted a bus carrying border guards affiliated with its force. It kidnapped 11 Iranian border guards in October.

The attack happened in Iran's port city of Chabahar which has been emerging as economic hub between the regional countries.

Iran's Shi'ite Muslim authorities say militant groups operate from safe havens in Pakistan and have repeatedly called on the neighboring country to crack down on them.

In September past year, Isis militants and an Arab group claimed responsibility for a deadly assault on a military parade, also in the country's south, that killed and wounded dozens of people, including members of the Guards.

It came on the same day that a conference convened by the United States in Warsaw was to include discussions on what Washington describes as Iran's malign influence across the wider Middle East.

Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, described the conference convened by the U.S. as the Warsaw Circus, and said it was "no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day" that the talks began.

But economic hardships fueled by US sanctions have triggered waves of protests that sometimes call for Iran's clerical leaders to step down.

And most recently, an attack on a military parade in September in Iran's oil-rich southwest killed over 20 and wounded over 60.

Jaish al-Adl claimed Wednesday's bombing in a statement online. He was tried and executed.
