Three Iranian Border Guards Killed In Western Azerbaijan Attack

Three Iranian border guards were killed and two others were injured on November 13, when they were attacked by unknown gunmen.

According to the Islamic Republic News Agency, IRNA, the border guards were killed while preventing “terrorists” from sneaking into the Iranian province of West Azerbaijan, which borders Turkey, the Iraqi Kurdistan Region and the Azerbaijani region of Nakhchivan.

According to the IRNA, the gunmen, who are yet to be identified, suffered heavy casualties in their infiltration attempt in West Azerbaijan.

A number of attacks carried out by Kurdish separatists or militants linked to ISIS targeted Iranian troops in West Azerbaijan in the past.

Last month, the Iranian military deployed large reinforcements in West Azerbaijan and other northwestern areas, while the battle between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces in the disputed region of Nagorno-Karabakh was heating up.

Iran had voiced its concern over the deployment of thousands of Syrian militants by Turkey and Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh along its northwestern border. The militants were brought into the region to back the Azerbaijani attack on Armenian forces.

It remains unclear if those militants were linked to the recent attack in West Azerbaijan. This, however, remains a possible scenario. Iran usually responds with brutal force to any attacks on its troops.

Assad must stay

RIP inshallah they are avenged

The Objective

All you Iranians talk about is avenge instead of defeat.

farbat

iran is a shia country and therefore its reactive not proactive in its deeds it is proactive and not reactive in its strategy making which means that all what happens is kinda anticipated and all what iran does is ment to achieve a goal while not being the starting party of any events

farbat

of course we iranians will get our revenge but all events happening at that point are going to be so out of control by for our enemies that only we will be able to sail straight in these chaotic stormy waters

The Objective

Your mistake. Assuming only you has been planning for the inevitable. what I do know is that you’ll end up getting nuked by Israel. the 200+ nuclear weapons in Israel isn’t pointing anywhere but Iran – not even Palestine. That is the result of your leaders’ folly. It’s highly like Iran will be the second country after Japan to get nuked because of the agenda you push in the Middle East. It appears your leaders have no idea who the Jews are and think of them as normal and humane.
Iran must be careful. Israel is like a monkey with a grenade. but instead of a grenade, it’s nuclear weapons.

Iranian border units are some of the most ill- equipped armed soldiers within Iran’s military forces next to regular conscripts. In general, Iranian foot-solider equipment is one of the worst in the region relative to nations like Azerbaijan, Armenia, Saudi Arabia, Israel, Iraq etc etc (you get the idea)…More over, the border units often if not always use lightly armored, well really no armor, Toyota (or similar) pick up trucks with some rudimentary modifications to the cargo bed in order to compensate for the easy seating of 5-10 men. To say that this is “bad” for the sort of dangers Iran faces at its borders is an understatement. It needs to change sometime soon…

The ironic thing is, is that Iran produces MRAPS and viable armored vehicles but the bulk of those made have been sold to Iraqi para-military/militia groups whilst regular Iranian troops get left with woefully inadequate equipment. This is primarily due to budgetary/doctrinal reasons but I wont get into that for now.

Hopefully in the future Iran will find the will/budget to allocate its resources into acquiring and equipping its foot-soldiers with higher-end gear. Admittedly this process with decade years to implement correctly as the refit would encompass more than just simply weapons and vehicles. Training, local logistics, even the doctrine itself would also have to change in order to compensate for the newer paradigm.

Assad must stay

yea this is messed up they need the border guards need the best of the best

farbat

nonsense

Assad must stay

what is nonsense?

farbat

iran doesnt fight on its borders so borderguards are nothing but mere police force

farbat

we will blow up the homes of the terrorists in return so they pretty much doomed their whole existence

farbat

even their daughter they turn to terrorists so they are suprised that we eradicate their whole family line these fat terrorists sitting back and sending their children into war dont deserve better really kurdish terrorists are quite miserable on that aspect and on the end of the day they lose all their commanders and can start all over again

Concrete Mike

time to crack some more skulls in idlib.

The Farney Fontenoy

Its surprising they would take such a risk knowing that Iranian troops on the border are still on high alert

Icarus Tanović

Oh, no you aren’t gonna get away with this. Avenge is incoming.

Frank

Frankly, learning a bit of English would be good. It is REVENGE. Avengers was a TV series. I believe watching British TV shows is helpful for third world students trying to master proper Queen’s English. I suggest BBC shows, for proper English and not American trash TV.

catalin zt

The “queen” is an DRACONIAN Reptilian and her servants stupid Genocidal paedophiles anglo-saxon SCUM!

Golda

I smell a zionist pretending to be objective . . .

The Objective

Avenge Soleimani first.

Free man

They are too cowardly.
It seems yhat they will soon have more reasons for revenge.

farbat

you are such a bunch of nobodies XD

catalin zt

Amen!

Fog of War

” Kurdish separatists or militants linked to ISIS ”
How is Iran going to face Zio forces when it cant even get a handle on these goons ?

farbat

they are already handled but for them to stop being created in the first place we need to take down our actual enemies starting with the usa

John Wallace

With supposed heavy casualties among the attackers I presume they have pockets to rifle to see if they are MEK or other groups identification paraphernalia . Seems a bit strange some group would want to enter Iran from that area at the moment. Maybe they were promised hotdogs if they did.

Frank

Frankly, with the headchoppers now ensconced in Azerbaijan, both Russia and Iran should expect more attacks.

Jaime Galarza

Iran knows who to blame for that. It’s a country led by a rabid leader who thinks he’s all powerful.

Fog of War

Israhell !!

Ryan Glantz

thought you guys meant turkey, but israhell is equally as apt an answer really.

JIMI JAMES

Harry Smith

HitlerWasRight

JIMI JAMES

cechas vodobenikov

writes the crude racist

farbat

who killed the villagers and destroyed the mosques we build?

HitlerWasRight

i shit on your mosque, its a place for satan

farbat

you armenians had this coming for your insolence and you can be happy that it wasnt us iranians who delivered this to you for what you did to our people

farbat

more to come for armenia btw armenia has no future it is owned by globalists and they want it gone to turn armenians into nationless people like the jews and all we did is allow things to go to a certain place where you armenians have taken it to far and had to learn a lesson so why would we once again deny the globalists when there was no right on your side

farbat

your insolence is amazing you are the same as the jews no suprise the globalists chose you treasonous bunch you arent even “armenians” not as if you had a clue about your own history you and “azerbaijan republic” are both imposters created by our enemies and your fate is going to be globalist tools and replace the broken failure of the jews which we broke but dont worry we will break you aswell and break their dreams of using you and if the russians were smart they would do the task for us and for themselves of course the “azerbaijan republic” and turkeys fate is going to become eradicated soon after they wiped you from the region completely so i doubt that they will stop here since its in the nature of such tools to end their tasks and get their delusions broken and shattered

farbat

you want to see armenians? look inside iran and syria and you find actual armenians but what are you if not a mix between cohen and levi what is your pashinyan if not a mix between jews and a little bit caucasians

farbat

pashinyan is a jew so are armenian globalists all they did is change their name similar to what terrorists do if they are caught and all you are about is to replace the jews and therefore deligitimize them similar like we iranians try to replace their zionist project even thou we work against them its the same thing only do you aim for the globalist tool which they aim to get rid of and we aim for the global control center tool they aim to create

HitlerWasRight

pissypants is a dog but why should armenian people suffer? are you your government?

Potato Man

Ahhh see the plan worked, we knew that Turk/Zion block were planning this shit, nor Zion or Turk can or have control over their Wahhabi shitheads.
Iran with Russia should raid them and hell even kill some Zion-Turk spies in Azer/n_k.

verner

the jews in palestine no doubt planned and executed the attack, to sow disorder and unrest and trying to make the iranians do something hasty which can be used as a pretext for an attack by the morons in washington. but it won’t happen . the iranians are busy planning for the payback for the murder of soleimani and the target is the jews in palestine primarily since the murder was instigated by the jews and took place at the behest of those war criminals

farbat

the zionists are always a target but i wouldnt say that they will be a main target since the usa will be the main target for sure

Kefir

Nice Iran suported muslim brothers not they are paying them back.

Free man

So it begins.
Apparently the Iranian Azeris want to unite with their people in the north.

farbat

apprently you arent even azeris you are imposters tell me please what does azerbaijan mean

farbat

what does arran and shirvan mean for that matter because you actually identify with these provinces you imposters dont even know anything
