Iranian border guard martyred in Saravan region

ZAHEDAN, Apr. 05 (MNA) – An Iranian Basij border guard was martyred on Saturday in an armed clash with gunmen in an outlying border region in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan.

The exchange of fire occurred between the smugglers and Iranian forces in the Bamposht region, near Saravan, bordering Pakistan, during which Basij Force member Esmaeil Ghalandarzehi was martyred.

Armed clashes along the border areas of Sistan and Baluchestan, which neighbors Pakistan, are not rare.
