Suicide Attack on Border Post Thwarted Suicide Attack on Border Post Thwarted

Islamic Revolution Guards Corps troops killed two suicide attackers in Iran's southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan before the terrorists manage to ram into a border post with their explosive-laden vehicle. The IRGC Ground Force's Quds Base said in a statement that its servicemen at a border post in the Saravan region successfully fought back "members of terrorist groups and armed outlaws" on Sunday night, when the assailants in a vehicle laden with explosives attacked the post, Tasnim News Agency reported. Two terrorists were killed in the incident and two Basij forces serving in the military post were wounded, the statement said.  One of the assailants killed himself by blowing up his explosive vest after failing to approach the post, it added. In January, IRGC forces in the province seized a consignment of explosives and suicide belts smuggled into the country for terrorist attacks.
