Iran arrests terrorists behind killing ۸ border guards
Commander of Iran's Border Guards Brigadier General Qassem Rezayee announced that his forces have arrested a number of terrorists in the Southeastern and Northwestern parts of the country, among them two terrorists involved in killing ۸ Iranian border guards ۲ years ago.

Hawzah News Agency (Tehran, Iran) - "The two terrorists are affiliated to Jeish al-Zolm (al-Adl) terrorist group and were arrested in a region in Southern Sistan and Balouchetan province in the Southeastern parts of the country," General Rezayee said on Tuesday.

He added that the two terrorists played a major role in killing 8 Iranian border guards two years ago and abducting 5 others, one of whom was later killed in Pakistan.


Jeish al-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility for the death of 8 Iranian border guards in the Southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan near the border with Pakistan in April 2015.

Jeish al-Adl claimed on its tweeter page that its members had attacked the cars carrying the Iranian border guards in the Southeastern town of Negur and killed 8 of them when clashes broke out as they were trying to cross the Iranian border from neighboring Pakistan.


The terrorist group also claimed that none of its members have been wounded or killed during the clashes, while the Iranian officials had earlier announced the death of three terrorists during the attack.
