Five Martyred‌ After Police Convoy Attacked by Terrorists in Southeast Iran

TEHRAN (Tasnim) - Two police vehicles came under a terrorist attack on the Suran-Mehrastan transportation route in Iran's Southeastern Sistan and Balouchestan Province, resulting in martyrdom of at least five officers and multiple injuries among security personnel.

During a patrol in Sib and Suran county, aimed at ensuring public safety on the night of Eid al-Fitr, "five brave police officers" were martyred in a cowardly attack by the Jaysh al-Adl terrorist group, as reported by the Information Center of the Law Enforcement Command of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The National Police Command, extending condolences to the families of the martyrs and police personnel nationwide, vowed to bring the terrorists to justice as soon as possible, and “cleanse the society from the filth of the criminals and enemies of this country."

These vehicles were transporting an individual linked to the martyrdom of HosseinAli Shibak, an Iranian police officer, from Sib and Suran to Mehrastan when they were ambushed by militants on their way back.

Jaysh al-Adl has claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement. However, a security official informed the Tasnim News Agency that confirmation of Jaysh al-Adl's involvement in the operation is pending further investigation.

The names of the martyrs from Sib and Suran were released, including Mohsen Kamali Doust, Esmaeil Baziollahrey, Kazem Mollaee, Hossein Sardashti Birjandi, and Behzad Barani.

One injured individual is currently undergoing treatment at the nearest hospital due to severe injuries.
