TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (UPI) — Three members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps were killed by a roadside bomb Wednesday morning in southeast Iran, officials said.
Their vehicle hit a roadside bomb in the border region of Saravan in Sistan-and-Baluchestan Province in the southeast of the country, Iran’s government-supported Press TV reported. The three were members of the Guards’ engineering division working on construction projects near the border, deputy provincial governor Rajabali Sheikhzadeh told the television network.
“At around 6.30 this morning, the vehicle of IRGC’s engineering unit working on the development projects in the province ran into a booby trap. Unfortunately three IRGC personnel were killed in the blast,” he told the semi-official Fars News Agency.
He noted earlier this month terrorists attacked a border checkpoint in southeast Iran killing an IRGC member and injuring six others. Weeks earlier 17 Iranian border guards were killed in an ambush in the Saravan region that borders Pakistan, Press TV said.
