Tehran, Iran – At least 18 members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) were killed in a bombing in the restive south-eastern province of Sistan-va-Baluchistan, state media reported on Wednesday.
The Sistan-va-Baluchistan area of Iran has been targeted by the government as a hot bed of opposition. The chief of the State Security Forces was recently killed in the neighboring village of Delgan. One of the main opposition groups in this Sunni - Muslim dominated area is, Jondollah Organisation of Iran (Soldiers of Allah), and has been linked to assassination attempts on President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, has recently announced responsibility in the attacks.
I have not been able to find this group listed as a known terrorist group and reports out of China suggest the United States is supporting them.
