Iran: Deadly attack hits police post in Chabahar

Rare suicide car bombing kills at least three people in Iran

State TV also showed footage of smoke rising over the city.

The so-called Ansar al-Furqan terrorist group later claimed responsibility for the assault.

Suicide bombings are rare in Iran, but Sunni militant groups have carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces in the Sistan-Baluchestan province in recent years.

At least two people were killed and many more injured in the terror attack outside police headquarters in Chabahar.

The top Iranian diplomat took to his Twitter page on Thursday to react to the vehicle bomb attack, which he said was perpetrated by "foreign-backed terrorists".

"The suicide attacker set off the explosion after stopping at police headquarters in Chabahar". "As we've made clear in the past, such crimes won't go unpunished", Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.

India Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Chabahar in Iran.




Chabahar is a free trade zone and the site of an Indian-backed port complex being developed as part of a new transportation corridor for landlocked Afghanistan. The perpetrators behind this dastardly attack should be brought to justice expeditiously.

Chabahar city is around 100 km from Iran's border with Pakistan.

India is developing the Chabahar port along with Iran and Afghanistan.

The attack comes as Iran's economy is reeling in the wake of the U.S.re-imposing sanctions lifted under Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.

In June a year ago, IS militants attacked parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the 1979 Islamic Revolution, killing at least 18 people and wounding more than 50.

"The terrorist grouplets are mainly linked to foreign security services like those belonging to Saudi Arabia, and have constantly been seeking to destabilize our border regions", said the IRGC official. "There can be no justification for any act of terror", the ministry said. Arab separatists and the Islamic State (IS) issued competing claims for the attack, which prompted Iran to launch ballistic missiles at IS targets in Syria.
