Attack on Iran’s paramilitary base kills 1, wounds 5


Two attackers scaled the wall of a Basij paramilitary base and opened fire, killing one member of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard and wounding five others in the southeastern town of Nikshahr, Iranian media reported on February 2.

Nikshahr prosecutor Mohsen Golmohammadi told the semi-official Mehr news agency the victim was a “member of the Guard” and identified him as Morteza Aliahmadi. He did not elaborate on Aliahmadi’s rank.

The Basij is affiliated with the Guard. Golmohammadi said both attackers escaped. No group immediately claimed responsibility.
