IRGC Quds Force arrests perpetrator of sound bomb blast in Iran's Sistan-Baluchestan
The Quds Force of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has arrested the main perpetrator of a recent sound bomb explosion in the country's southeastern city of Zahedan in Sistan-Baluchestan Province.
In a statement on Saturday, the IRGC's Quds Force said that security forces, who maintain constant surveillance of the area, captured the main element who had planted a sound bomb on Sadra street in Zibashahr neighborhood in Zahedan a few days ago.
It added that the necessary follow-up is underway to arrest other elements involved in this "terrorist act."
On August 5, members of a terrorist group planted explosives in a ditch on Sadra street and then called the police to report an incident. Immediately after the police forces reached the site, the terrorists detonated the explosives, injuring four offices and damaging a police car.
IRGC forces regularly engage in clashes with terrorists seeking to carry out acts of sabotage across the country.
Back in May, the IRGC’s Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base said in a statement that a number of terrorists had been killed as the IRGC forces carried out a security operation in the western province of Kordestan, which borders Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region.
It added that several “counter-revolutionary’ terrorists were killed during clashes in Divandarreh County.
