At least 41 killed in Iran bombing on Revolutionary Guard personnel bus

At least 41 killed in Iran bombing on Revolutionary Guard personnel bus”

The bus was travelling on a highway near the town of Chanali in Iran's southeastern Sistan-Baluchistan province, the state-run Fars news agency reported citing officials it didn't name.

Known for being volatile, militant groups and drug smugglers frequently operate in the area.

It also came two days after Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and four decades of tense relations with the west.

Iranian state media have blamed Jaish al-Adl or "Army of Justice", an al-Qaida-linked Sunni extremist group for the bombing.

The Guards issued a statement confirming the attack.

According to IRGC Qods Base statement, the bus was attacked by a vehicle bomb packed with explosive material on the road between Zahedan and Khash in the southeastern province.

It came on the same day that a conference convened by the USA in Warsaw was to include discussions on what Washington describes as Iran's malign influence across the wider Middle East.

Jundallah, a pro-Sunni group still active in the region on Iran's border with Pakistan, claimed responsibility for that attack.

A bomb attack on a Revolutionary Guards bus in Iran's Sistan and Baluchestan Province Wednesday killed some 40 people.

Jaish al-Adl claimed Wednesday's bombing in a statement online.

While Iran has been enmeshed in the wars engulfing Syria and neighboring Iraq, it largely has avoided the bloodshed plaguing the region.

Both the jihadist group Islamic State (IS) and Iranian ethnic Arab separatists claimed they were behind the assault, but neither provided conclusive evidence.

"Is it no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day that #WarsawCircus begins?" "Especially when cohorts of same terrorists cheer it from Warsaw streets & support it with (Twitter) bots?" Thirteen people were wounded.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif predicted the Warsaw summit would not be productive for the U.S.

Back in October 2018, at least 29 people were killed and 70 others wounded in an attack on a military parade in Iran's southwestern city of Ahvaz.
