Iranian state media said 14 Iranian security personnel of the border guards and the people’s mobilization forces were abducted on Tuesday in east of the country.
The security personnel were abducted between 4 am and 5 am in the Lulakdan area of the border with Pakistan.
The Associated Press news agency reported that the 14 were involved in “a security operation” and included two members of the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit, seven Basij militiamen and five regular border guards.
Meanwhile, Jaish al-Adl (Army of Justice) said it captured 15 Iranian personnel of the Revolutionary Guards in Mirjaveh in Sistan-Baluchestan province on Tuesday.
“Ebrahim Azizi, spokesman for Jaish al-Adl said the group carried out the operation in retaliation of injustice towards the Baluchi community in Iran,” Yacoub Hor al-Tostari, a spokesman for the Arab Struggle Movement to Liberate Ahvaz, told THE REFERENCE.
Iran’s IRNA news agency said the 14 abducted personnel included two members of the elite Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit, seven Basij militiamen and five regular border guards.
Jaish al-Adl is an Iranian Sunni opposition group in Sistan-Baluchestan province. It started operations after the execution of its leader Abdul Malik Rigi in 2010.
Iran’s official IRNA news agency said a soldier’s body was found. The soldier was abducted along with 4 others in February 2014.
