The IRNA news agency said the dead included the deputy commander of the Guard's ground force, Gen. Noor Ali Shooshtari, as well as a chief provincial Guard commander for the area, Rajab Ali Mohammadzadeh. The other dead were Guard members or local tribal leaders. Dozens of others were wounded, the report said.
The commanders were inside a car on their way to a meeting in the Pishin region near Iran's border with Pakistan when an attacker with explosives blew himself up, IRNA said.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but the region in Iran's southeast has been at the center of violent attacks by a Sunni militant group called Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, that has waged a low-level insurgency in recent years...

What goes aronud...

They hit a military target not a market full of women and children. They’re obviously not connected to Taliban or Al Qaeda.
Don’t usually celebrate a suicide bombing - but if it took out members / leaders of the Revolutionary Guard - then GOOD!!!
Gen. Nur-Ali Shushtari, deputy commander of the IRGC ground forces, and Gen. Mohammad-Zadeh, chief IRGC commander of the province.This is more very bad news for the Iranian military - there have been too many of these "accidents" to be coincidental actions by seperate groups. Looks to me like a military decapitation strike by pieces.
The loss of top IRGC commanders is a grave blow to the elite corps... Gen. Shuhstari's covert position as commander of the Al Qods Brigades' bases abroad, in such places as Iran and Afghanistan and in support of the Hizballah in Lebanon and the Palestinian Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Al Qods runs the IRGC terrorist campaigns outside Iran. Shushtari was also Gen. Qassem Suleimeni, the Revolutionary Guards' chief's deputy.
I would have preferred using one of their own IUD’s, but that’ll work.
Gee . . . too bad.
It struck me the same way. :)
Bingo! You sponsor terrorism and specifically homicide bombers. You train, fund, ideologically and religiously justify homicide bombing terrorism. And you are going to get more of it and at least some is going to be directed at you.
