Near the Pakistani border, four security personnel, according to Iran
According to official media, security personnel from Iran were murdered in a confrontation with an unidentified "terrorist outfit."
Four soldiers of Iran's security forces, according to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), were killed in a gunfight close to the Pakistani border.
An unnamed "terrorist organization" fight resulted in the deaths of three Basij forces personnel as well as one elite force member, Mohammad Goudarzi, according to a statement made by state media.
According to the report, the terrorists fled to Pakistan after the attack was repulsed by IRGC ground forces.
According to reports, the incident happened at Saravan, a city close to Pakistan's border in the province of Sistan and Balochistan, in the southeast.
The IRGC did not claim that the clashes were related to the nation's on-going unrest, which erupted in mid-September following Mahsa Amini's death while in custody. Mahsa was detained by morality police for allegedly failing to adhere to a requirement for women's attire, and she was later found dead in custody.
However, it has previously charged "separatist" and "terrorist" groups with fomenting unrest in Kurdish-dominated regions in Iran's northwest and border regions of Sistan and Balochistan, where the bulk of the country's ethnic Balochis reside.
Since the start of the protests, Sistan and Balochistan have witnessed some of the bloodiest incidents.
This includes a situation on September 30 in which, according to Amnesty International, dozens of people were killed by security personnel.
Security forces reacted when what Iran claimed were "terrorist" forces opened fire, killing six members of the IRGC among others.
A security organization in Iran said earlier this month that 200 people had died in the unrest since September; this number is significantly lower than the more than 450 cited by human rights organizations with international bases.
The United States and Israel are among the foreign nations that Iranian authorities claim are responsible for the unrest in their nation.
On Sunday, state television broadcast a report claiming that the Iranian intelligence ministry had detained a number of unnamed people who were reportedly working at Israel's direction to "destroy vital defense businesses."
