Alwaght- The commander of the intelligence unit of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan has been killed in clashes with anti-revolution elements who opened fire near a mosque in the provincial capital Zahedan.

Following a terrorist attack on a police station in Zahedan earlier on Friday, an armed group gathered near the Makki mosque and started shooting, which prompted the security forces to immediately get to the scene.

The IRGC commander, Ali Mousavi, was injured by a bullet in the chest and was taken to the hospital. But he succumbed to his wound.
