The Suicide Bomber, 22-Year Old Baluchi

An official in Iran's Sistan-Baluchistan province has identified the suicide bomber in Sunday’s attack in the Baluchi town of Sarbaz as a 22-year old Iranian citizen named Abdulwahed Mohammadizadeh.

Jalal Sayah, Baluchistan’s deputy governor for security, has told IRNA, the official Iranian news agency, that Mohammadizadeh travelled to Pakistan four months ago to receive his training at a Riggi (Jundallah) camp before returning to Iran to blow himself up, killing 41 people, including a senior IRGC commander, and injuring more than 50 others.

Mohammadizadeh was born in 1987 in Baluchistan. According to government records, he had been arrested in 2001 and 2002, on charges of fraud and assault, and had spent time in prison.

The Israelis do the right thing on this kind of actions.

They destroy the homes of the family of the bomber, to make the bomber think twice before wasting his misreble life.

Iran should do that too, or at least strip thewhole family off their citizenships and deport them to Pakistan.
