Iran arrests five Jundallah group members
Five members of the Jundallah group were arrested in Iran's Sistan and Baluchestan province, the Iranian asriran.com website reported.
During the operation conducted by the Security Ministry, the officers seized ammunition from the arrested. The arrested intended to commit several terror attacks in the region.
Jundallah (Army of God) was created in 2003 and operates primarily in the Iranian province of Sistan-Baluchestan, which borders Pakistan. Jundallah uses a variety of terrorist tactics, including suicide bombings, ambushes, kidnappings and targeted assassinations. According to Tehran, Jundallah is linked with the U.S. and UK intelligence services.
The last major terrorist attack was an explosion in south-eastern Iran in October 2009 which killed nearly 50 people. The organization claimed responsibility for the terror act.
