TEHRAN -- Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said Friday (September 28) it had killed four unidentified militants who had slipped across the border from Pakistan into Sistan-Baluchestan Province, Iran, AFP reported.
Two militants were wounded in the clash with the "rest of the terrorists fleeing to the soil of the neighbouring country [Pakistan]."
Sistan-Baluchestan has part of a large Sunni Muslim ethnic Balochi community that straddles the border into Balochistan Province, Pakistan. In Iran, the Sunni militant group Jundallah (Soldiers of God) has been active since the early 2000s.
In 2012, Jundullah members formed a successor organisation -- Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice) -- which has conducted a series of attacks on Iranian security forces.
