Four police officers were wounded on Tuesday night while dismantling a “suspicious package” in the city of Zahedan, southeast Iran.

The Jaish al-Adl group claimed responsibility for the explosions and said it had targeted a police station with “two strong bombs”, damaging a police car and motorcycle.

Last October, the same group had claimed responsibility for kidnapping 10 Iranian security personnel, including Revolutionary Guards members in Sistan-Baluchestan.

Iranian state agencies reported hearing the sound of two explosions in Zahedan, while the Mehr news agency quoted the head of Sistan-Baluchestan police Mohammad Qanbari as saying that four officers were injured after the police received information about the explosion of a percussion grenade.
