At least 20 Guard personnel killed in Iran bombing

Benny Gantz speaking to Israel Resilience activists

A bomb attack on a Revolutionary Guards bus in Iran's Sistan and Baluchestan Province Wednesday killed some 40 people.

The Sunni jihadist movement Jaysh ul-Adl claimed responsibility for the attack, and claimed they had killed every one of the forty soldiers on board.

Wednesday's violence comes during a month in which Iran has been commemorating the 1979 Islamic Revolution which swept the USA -backed Shah from power.

"In this suicide attack a auto filled with explosives blew up besides a bus carrying a unit of the Guards' ground forces causing the martyrdom and wounding of a number of the protectors of our Islamic homeland's border", the statement read.

Wednesday's attack was the deadliest in Iran since September, when gunmen killed at least 24 people at a military parade in the south-western city of Ahvaz.

In October, Jaish al-Adl claimed responsibility for kidnapping 10 Iranian security personnel.

However, a bombing like this inside of Iran likely will draw an immediate reaction from the Guard, a massive paramilitary organization that both controls Iran's ballistic missile program and vast chunks of its economy.

A coordinated June 7, 2017 Islamic State group assault on Parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution. In 2018, the Guards launched missiles at an Iranian Kurdish armed opposition group in northern Iraq.

No further details about the attack were immediately available. 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.

Neighbouring Pakistan condemned the suicide attack, "Shocked and grieved to hear about the suicide attack on IRGC bus near Zahidan today, in which many lives were lost", Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said in a statement.

Zarif tweeted Wednesday night: "Is it no coincidence that Iran is hit by terror on the very day that #WarsawCircus begins?" Zarif wrote on Twitter.

The Guard issued a statement confirming the attack.

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