On the evening (local time) of Tuesday, February 5, unidentified gunmen opened fire on a government building in the town of Sarbaz (Sistan and Baluchestan province). According to local sources, no casualties were reported in the incident. The attack comes amid a state-sanctioned, ten-day celebration period commemorating the 40th anniversary of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which began on Friday, February 1.

Similar militant attacks on security forces are possible in Sistan and Baluchestan province over the near term, particularly as the abovementioned celebration period continues.


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 are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
