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

Iran's elite force has been targeted in the past with deadly attacks

Iran's elite force has been targeted in the past with deadly attacks

The so-called Jaish ul-Adl terror group, which is based across the border in Pakistan and is responsible for kidnapping Iranian border guards and carrying out other terrorist attacks of this kind in Sistan and Baluchistan province over the past years, has claimed responsibility for the deadly terrorist attack on social media. It described the passengers as "shift personnel", but didn't provide any details of their rank.

While Sunni militant groups are not regarded as a major threat, the attack dealt a fresh blow to Iran's security establishment, which has often said it can repel any threat no matter how big, even from the United States and its ally Israel.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is linking a suicide bombing targeting the country's elite Revolution Guard to an ongoing, US-sponsored Mideast meeting in Warsaw.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi condemned the attack and said the victims will soon be avenged.

While violence and bomb attacks are not uncommon on both Iran's western and eastern frontiers - bordering Iraq and Afghanistan respectively - audacious and organised assaults that directly target the Islamic Republic's security services are still rare.

Iran's Guards fired missiles at Islamic State militants in Syria in 2017 and 2018 after the group claimed responsibility for two attacks in Tehran and Ahvaz.

"This terrorist act happened a short time ago and according to reports at least 20 have been martyred and 20 have been wounded", an informed source told IRNA.

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

"Especially when cohorts of same terrorists cheer it from Warsaw streets & support it with twitter bots?"

Iran's Shi'ite Muslim authorities say militant groups operate from safe havens in Pakistan and have repeatedly called on the neighboring country to crack down on them. President Donald Trump, who campaigned on a promise of tearing up Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers, withdrew the US from the accord last May.

Zarif earlier predicted the Warsaw summit would not be productive for the U.S.
