At least five Iranian security guards were killed in a clash with militants near the Pakistani border, according to official Iranian TV on Sunday.

The report said the incident occurred in Saravan town near Iran’s Pakistan border in the Sistan and Balochistan province, 1,360 Km southeast of Tehran.

Sunday’s attack was carried out by “a terrorist group that was seeking to infiltrate the country” but whose members “fled the scene after suffering injuries”, IRNA said.

Iran foreign ministry spokesman Nasser Kanani condemned the attack saying Iran expects Pakistan to “crackdown on terrorist groups” and “try to improve the security of the common borders”.

“Certainly, these terrorist groups aim to disrupt the security of the common borders and the security of the people living on the borders of the two countries,” he added.

So far, no group or individual have not claimed responsibility for the attack.

Poverty-stricken Conflicts involving drug trafficking gangs, Baluchi rebels, and Sunni Muslim extremist organizations have occurred in Sistan-Baluchistan, which borders Afghanistan.

This was one of the deadliest attacks in the region in recent months.
