A suicide bomber killed at the least 3 humans in Iran's southeastern port town of Chabahar on Thursday, country media stated.
"This morning a bomb inner a automobile exploded close to a police station in Chabahar. Three people have been killed and a few others had been injured," Chabahar's governor Rahmdel Bameria instructed state tv.
Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) ground pressure Brigadier general Mohammad Pakpour informed semi-respectable Tasmin news employer such a "blind terrorist attack” would gain no results.
Chabahar lies in Sistan-Baluchistan close to the border with Pakistan. The province has a Sunni Muslim ethnic Baluchi minority that straddles the border with Pakistan, in which Baluchi separatists and jihadis are energetic.
there has been no on the spot claim of responsibility for the assault, but Tasmin blamed Ansar al-Furqan, a Sunni jihadi institution.
Uptick in terror assaults
In June last yr, IS militants attacked parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the chief of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, killing at least 18 people and wounding more than 50.
Iranian forces also regularly conflict with Kurdish separatists along the mountainous border with the self reliant Iraqi Kurdistan location.
Tehran regularly blames the us, Saudi Arabia and Israel for backing groups to destabilize Iran, something its rivals deny.
