The terrorist group has carried out numerous bombings, assassination attempts, and terrorist attacks against Iranian government officials and civilians, including women and children.

Intelligence forces detained Jundallah's ringleader, Abdolmalek Rigi, in February 2010. He was executed in June the same year after being found guilty of 79 criminal charges.
