Zahedan is the capital of Sistan-Baluchestan province where Iranian security forces often clash with armed drugs smugglers and members of Sunni militant group, Jaish al-Adl (the Army of Justice). The terrorist group has carried out several attacks on Iranian security forces mainly in Sistan-Baluchestan. For example, it claimed responsibility for an attack that killed 10 border guards near Pakistan in 2017.
