Foreign Involvement in Bombing- Gen. Jazayeri

Brig. Gen Seyyed Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces, said today in Tehran that US, Britain, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan were involved in last week’s bombing in the border region of Pishin in Iranian Baluchistan.

"The recent terrorist activities in Sistan-Baluchestan were conducted with the help of the Americans, the British, an Arab country and one of our eastern neighbors. We are well aware of such matters and necessary counter-measures will definitely be taken in response to such acts," Gen. Jazayeri said [IRNA, 25 October].

"Terrorist activities particularly in borderline regions, threats and psychological warfare, soft war and even certain military measures in border regions are attempts at replacing unity with discord in our country," Jazayeri continued.

The militant Iranian Sunni group Jundallah has claimed responsibility for the bombing.
