Two Militants Killed in Clash with Iranian Security Forces in Saravan
Iranian state-run media reported on Sunday that two militants were killed in a clash with security forces in the Saravan district of Sistan and Baluchestan province.
The report said that the militants were killed after they were pursued and shot at by security forces. The report also said that the militants were carrying explosives, which detonated during the clash, killing them both.
The report did not provide any information about the identity or affiliation of the militants, but it noted that militants from the Jaish al-Adl group have previously attacked Iranian security forces in Saravan and other parts of Sistan and Baluchestan.
Jaish al-Adl is a Sunni militant group that has been fighting for the rights of the Baloch people in Iran. The group has carried out numerous attacks against Iranian security forces in recent years.
The clash in Saravan is the latest in a series of attacks by militants in Sistan and Baluchestan. The province is home to a large Baloch population, and there has been a long-standing conflict between the Baloch people and the Iranian government.
The Iranian government has accused Jaish al-Adl of being a terrorist group, and the United States has designated the group as a terrorist organization.
