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.

Blue In Green

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.

Bogdan Latow

Stupid imperialist ! Do you think that everybody must learn perfectly your language ? So arrogant from a country of obese and stupid people, that the leaders of Israel boast of dominating.

catalin zt

Nothing to expect from this capitalist-fascist degenerated genocidal race!!!! This monkeys are sick with profits,paedophilia ,drugs and all of them are the ultimate perverse !!!! Is no cure for this species only intense radioactive treatment! Amen!

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.

farbat

first of all on january we will push america out of west asia and after it we will see those who support terrorism against iran fall to ruin or kneel and accept to be subjugated

Fog of War

” iran fall to ruin or kneel and accept to be subjugated ”

So you want Iran to turn into the exact same thing its been resisting for decades now. Smart plan guy. SMH

The Objective

So you also admit the Iranian regime wants to subjugate others. I’m surprised to hear this from a Shiite supporter of the Mullahs. You guys are always experts at denial.
Well, Iran can try to push the US out of the Middle East. Goodluck with that.

farbat

why would we deny that we create satrapies?why would we deny that we will subjugate or crush our enemies?

The Objective

You deny to lull your enemies (Sunnis not Israelis) to sleep while you plan. Thankfully, the monarchies are aware of these grand designs and are pushing back despite being weaker than the Shiites. They’ll manage to keep you off taking the Hejaz until true Muslim patriots and heroes take over from them. And you always knows what the result is whenever the Sunnis decide enough is enough and try to cleanse Islam of deviations and disbelieve spread by the misled Shiites.
Like I always say, America is holding its sword to your face and you have no option but stand and watch. You can’t get the U.S out of the way without waging war. And you can’t wage war against the U.S without destroying much of the Shiite forces in the region. See? That’s why your leaders avoid a war with the U.S. They want to retain these forces so they are capable of taking the Hejaz whenever the Mullahs decide it’s time. Your luck currently is that Turkey is in a struggle with the GCC leadership for influence on the Muslim world. I believe these leaders will soon realize what the real threat is and concentrate on securing Islam’s holy land even while disagreeing on other matters.
Make no mistake, a Shiite attempt to take over the Hejaz will ignite a war with the Sunni Muslim world that Iran CANNOT manage or contain. Egypt, Sudan, Niger, Nigeria, Turkey, Pakistan, and many others are within a stone’s throw of Saudi Arabia. That’s why I look at the Mullahs as being mad actually, thinking they’ll take and keep the Hejaz with the current Muslim awakening of the Sunnis sweeping across the globe.

farbat

entities such as the uae kuwait saudi arabia etc pp arent going to make it a year without the usa in west asia and the zionists meanwhile will slowly but surely collapse to 0 and the usa will leave because it will die and burn if it doesnt all of its assets are going to be either blown to pieces or invaded and seized

The Objective

you have been saying the US will leave now for over a decade. But the opposite has happened. Iran is more surrounded than before. Iran hasn’t the guts to try to get the US out of the middle east, and it’ll commit national suicide if any Mullah ever attempted it.
Trump has taught the world that Iran is just a barking dog. Destroyed their economy with sanctions, assassinated a top military leader, but they still not dare cross a nuclear red line. What cowards.

catalin zt

Your anglo-saxon Fascist capitalist feudalist SCUM race will perish soon and all of u DIRT will be individually HUNTED all around the World by the People of the Free NATIONS! Your jewish Genocidal “friends” will have the very same faith! Amen!

The Objective

You missed the whole point. I’m not even a supporter of the U.S or Israel. I only agree with them on one thing: the Shiite threat to the Sunni Muslim world. Unfortunate, Erdogan and other Sunni leaders don’t seem to take this threat seriously. Erdogan especially, is forging ties with Iran (an enemy that for over 1000 years have never really given up its push to take control of the Muslim world and pollute our beliefs). I’m not on the side of America or Israel regarding Middle East matters, but I’ll rather work with them than the Shiite Mullahs of Iran. These mullahs are so smart and cunning that you need to really think hard to figure out what their real aim is.

Iran is more dangerous to the Sunnis of the Middle East than both America and Israel combined. Because neither America nor Israel has the desire to take the Hejaz. But the mad Shiites ruling Iran clearly are after this price. There can be no compromise with them. They want Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem or nothing. They are not after securing Iran, or wealth, or economic prosperity, or anything else. All these they see as a means towards the real goal of taking Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem.

If Biden thinks he’ll negotiate with them to permanently give up this ambition, he can give it a try, but I’m pretty sure America will regret such decisions in the end. The only way to effective put an end to this dangerous Iranian ambition is to destroy the proxy forces that have now surrounded Mecca & Medina from Yemen to the Persian gulf and Iraq. That is the reason these militias want to be independent with their weapons and institutions. They are a region-wide Shiite army on the march to Mecca and Medina.

Should U.S forces leave the Middle East, that’s it. They’ll instigate a civil war in Saudi Arabia and slip in Shiite forces. Before the world knows what’s happening, Shiites have taken Mecca and Medina. And then they’ll fight to the death to defend it. At that moment, it’ll be too late for the Sunni Muslim world to take it back even by force of arms. This is exactly what’ll happen if the U.S withdraws from the Middle East. This is Soleimani’s grand design (May he dwell in Jahannam). That’s why America must keep its forces in the Middle East until a united alliance of the gulf countries emerge to effectively defend the Hejaz. Erdogan had better realize this and push for a Muslim alliance to defend Mecca and Medina. The Saudi Monarchy (despite its evil) is far far far better than any Shiite alternative.

farbat

hahaha you miserable ones you shall face ruin and after your homes are burned and your children are nothing but a pile of ash tell me if it was worth it

The Objective

yeah, if you mean Israel’s nukes on Iran, you’re right.

farbat

we havent said the usa will leave for a decade in fact its the usa who says for 4 decades that iran will collapse next year

The Objective

And Iran almost did collapse during the protests. on the other hand, there wasn’t a time when America was almost driven out of the Middle East. In fact they have deployed FAR more military gear than withdrawn. Follow the secret deployment on Diego Garcia and you’ll know even Biden won’t reverse it. It appears the U.S is prepared for the worst.

farbat

we have said that the zionist usurper entity will not exist in 20 years

farbat

we have said that the usa will sink like the titanic and that just recently so watch it sinking

The Objective

The US will sink with time, but Iran will go too – trust me. They won’t take it lightly with Iran and neither will their nuclear-armed ally (Israel). You Iranians will sacrifice your nation to rid the world of America. Your choice.

farbat

this year we have put basically a crosshair on americans and therefore we say america wont stay because if it does it will be blown to pieces on january

The Objective

The usual Iranian bluster. What did you do when Trump nuked Soleimani? What did you do when he heaped crushing sanctions on your economy? The world saw how you blink, even though you’re too proud to admit.
Downing of the US Bombadier in Afghanistan was anonymous. Why didn’t your leaders publicly take credit for it like Trump did with Soleimani? Who is afraid of who then? Iranians can talk big, but you are well aware of the realities, and often, you act different from your rhetoric.

farbat

it would be interesting if america didnt leave because iran would have all the right in the world to seize american navy assets aswell as bases which would mean iran would immediatly have many dozen bases all around the region

The Objective

This dangerous dream of regional hegemony by Iranians will lead to a regional war sooner than latter. You can shoot off with your mouth now that you feel Trump has been defeated. Because you perceive Joe Biden as being weak. But remember that it is the U.S military, not Joe Biden, that’ll do the fighting when the time comes.
You are shooting off with your mouth against two nuclear-armed an ruthless countries. Iranians talk big, but when it comes time to act, they do all they can to dodge a fight, even at the cost of such humiliation as the Soleimani assassination. What they hope to achieve from mouthiness I have no idea.
You shouldn’t be celebrating a Biden victory yet. Trump’s latest moves with the pentagon has set off alarm bells and he is likely to do a lot more damage than Biden can fix before leaving office. One or more of the following may happen before January 20th.
1. Trump pulls all US forces out of Afghanistan thereby handing it over to the Taliban
2. Trump orders a strike on Iraqi militias that all but destroys them
3. Israel launches an attack on Hezbollah
4. Israel strikes Iran’s nuclear site.
If non of these happens, only then should you declare victory over Trump, although Biden isn’t the man Iranians think he is. Time will tell, but he’ll surprise Iran at some point.

Free man

These guys are desperate.
They will embrace any imaginary victory and use every cheap propaganda trick to hide the weakness of the mullahs regime.

The Objective

Of course you are right. What really foxes me is that most of the people commenting here seem to be ignorant of Iran’s real aim. It’s quite clear for anyone to see that they are marching towards Mecca and Medina, and frankly, they are pretty close to taking it. Only America forces currently stand in their way. Turkey and the GCC are busy fighting over dominance of the Sunnis Muslim world, while Shiite forces surround the Hejaz from the Persian gulf, to the Iraqi and Yemeni borders.

The militias will NEVER agree to disarm or join the official forces of their home country no matter what the world gives them. That’s because it’ll disrupt the cohesiveness of their operations. They are a region-wide Shiite army, well coordinated by Iran. And their one aim is to take the Hejaz, cos that’s the only way they can really wield great influence over the Muslim world. They’ve been at this struggle for over 1000 years.

I just hope Sunni leaders realize this early enough. Because right now, there is only one force standing in their way. And it’s not a Sunni force. That’s why they just can’t hide their frustration over America’s refusal to withdraw its forces from the Middle East. Despite my dislike for America due to its contribution to the suffering of millions around the world, I do realize that they are currently a stabilizing force in the Middle east, not a destabilizing one as Iran would like to have people believe.

farbat

you are funny both you and the turkish dog but wait and see yourselves be a little bit more patient because god is with the patient ones and you arent patient so what do you think might happen to all of you shortsighted fools

The Objective

And Shiites are the wise people? Your patience is for pure evil. Your history is full of defeat. So don’t shoot off with your mouth here. go back to history and see how it ended with all Shiites who at some point tried to hijack the Muslim world. You think Iran will be any different? You just lost your greatest national hero in the most humiliating assassination ever. They didn’t even use a gun on Soleimani although they could. They practically bombed him to pieces. Do you know what message that is?
You are currently in America and Israel’s cross hairs. No other Sunni country is in such situation as Iran. Iran is pointing its weapons against America, Israel and the GCC. Then these countries are also pointing their missiles and military hardware at Iran (including nukes). Tell me how does this look good for Iran in the future. You guys are constantly living on the brink of a catastrophe and all you do is brag and be delusional. The mullahs will invite destruction of the Persians like it’s never been seen before. Do you really believe you have a chance against the current odds? Indeed it’s you who is clueless to reality.

farbat

how funny you talk about weakness yet the desperate jump for more land annexation isnt by iran its by turkey who is desperate to get north iraq and north syria into their hands only to lose more and more soldiers while trying and losing despite the help of basically america and all of its lackeys at the start of the failure

farbat

it did only take one guy who is a polymathic probably selfeducated amateur capability to figure out what your governments are hiding from you which is why they are actually freaking scared of iran and what irans #hotsummer message meant

farbat

iam sorry that you are all so clueless

catalin zt

You anglo-saxon pervertperverse Genocidal SCUM ,just stinky shit gets out of your poisonous mouth and “heart”…. capitalist-fascist terrorist!

The Objective

Is that all you’ve got to say? Deny any of my claims about Iran’s FINAL goal in the Middle East and let’s debate it with proofs.

farbat

irans final goal isnt just the middle east of course iran seeks do become a hegemon in west asia and why would i deny it you are all weaklings who wont stand a chance to irans superior doctrines so whine about us as much as you want we have all american bases in our aim and soon we will control all assets which were once american or america will leave freely being aware of the loss it will face and give us the west asian hegemon position on a silver tablet

farbat

hahahaha your points are so laughable hahahaha biden will kneel infront of us or we will destroy washington dc and you dont know who we are really

farbat

when i claim that iran has atleast one future satrapy inside of the usa can you figure out which one i mean and when i say iran has million strong militias inside the usa can you figure out which ones iam talking about no you cant non of you has a brain and all you should do is learn to stop talking nonsense because it will all hurt in near future coming back to you XD

farbat

hahahah the small zionist fireworks were such a heavy defeat and now tell me were zionists hitting targets we wanted them to hit or did they hit targets we didnt wanted them to hit because i didnt see them hit one subterrain target still not even a small underground depot in syria was hit so what did they hit anyway

The Objective

I haven’t any business with the Zionists. I only see the Iranian danger to the Hejaz and the stability of neighboring Muslim countries. I hate Iran for it does to other countries and appears to be pursuing right now. If Iran were to get nuked by Israel, the Mullahs should take much of the blame for that eventuality. I wish no genocide for Iranians. but I support the struggle against the Mullahs.

farbat

israel strikes irans nuclear site is the best joke of all and now tell me was it really an f35 hit or was it sabotage and if it was sabotage what was the result of it other than iran getting basically the right to create another huge subterrain facility for testing and production of centrifuges and other things considering that iaea has no access to the facility so did the short sighted fool win the argument or was rather the patient one the winner of this whole nuclear issue XD

The Objective

Yeah, you know what, it’s a joke that Israel will strike Iran’s nuclear sites. Just like it would have been a joke if someone had said (in 2019) that Trump will openly assassinate Soleimani and take cridit.

farbat

we wont have to eradicate many of american terrorist mercs anymore after the region takes aim at america itself

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

Being micron of course,now you know the deep state are losing on all fronts,don’t pretend to be some ignorant (up its anus to the strapon,soros bot) if your not!
Just saying.

Harry Smith

The deep state is not loosing. They are regrouping.

catalin zt

Yor neuron is at loose again! Restrain him please otherwhise you might remain without him…poor lonely fellow…

Jaime Galarza

As opposed to you who has sh** for a brain. Restrain? Why don’t you come and try? Idiot!

farbat

sustainable border security is one of irans red lines so the ones who are behind this attack are going to regret it and considering how this year went i guess next year will become terrible for irans enemies they will lose so much

cechas vodobenikov

kurds routinely try to destabilize Iran, etc

verner

forget the kurds, once the situation clears a bit, turkey, syria and iran will deal with the kurds and bring them back as tenants on the border – iraq may find it a bit more troublesome since the kurds seem to be pretty well established around kirkuk and so on. however, the kurds will regret they took the bribes from the morons in the white house and the jews in palestine.

farbat

what does that mean anyway you dont seem to understand much of what is going on

JIMI JAMES

Muslim hits muslim,nah,more they homosexual western backed homosexual wannabes isis (period)
Fk off soros,you lost,either way that will not get the result you nazi sick fks of cias hoped for (period)

HitlerWasRight

suck a big cock iran! you betray armenia so fuck you! more to come

JIMI JAMES

No future in fascism nor the lgbtq,you lost (period) get over it Hitler was a liar + loser =FACT!

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
