Iranian Border Guards killed at Pak-Iran Border
TEHRAN, July 6, (APP/AFP) - Four Iranian border guards were
killed on Wednesday in a clash with armed rebels near the Pakistani
border, Iranian media reported.
The fighting occurred in the Rask region in the southwestern
Sistan-Balochistan province, Iranian media said without giving further details.
Last month, state television reported the death of a police officer and five "terrorists", said to be members of the Jaish al-Adl jihadist group, in the nearby Khash region.
Jaish al-Adl is thought to be behind a number of attacks in
Sistan-Balochistan in recent years, and Tehran accuses it of ties to
Pakistan-based Al Qaeda cells.
