A double suicide bombing was reported in the city of Zahedan (Sistan and Baluchestan province), located near the borders with Afghanistan and Pakistan, on Tuesday, January 29. According to local sources, militants detonated suicide vests in front of a police station, wounding at least four people. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack as of January 29. Similar militant attacks are possible in Sistan and Baluchestan province in the near term.


The threat posed by militancy remains high in all of Iran's border areas, especially in the west and the east, partly due to weak border monitoring by neighboring countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Turkey.


Individuals in Sistan and Baluchestan province, particularly those in Zahedan, are advised to avoid the area of the blasts, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
