A terrorist attack on a coronavirus aid convoy in Iran’s western province of Kordestan has left two people dead and one injured.

The aid convoy came under attack by the terrorists affiliated with the “global arrogance” in Bolbar village in the district of Uraman of Sarvabad County late on Wednesday, according to a statement by the Public Relations Office of Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force.

The victims were a resident, an official with the prefect's office and a member of the country's Basij volunteer force, it added,

The IRGC expressed condolences over the losses and assured the people in the area that the distribution of the coronvirus aid would continue unabatedly.

 It also vowed to bring the perpetrators of this cowardly crime to justice.

In July 2018, counter-revolutionary terrorists attacked a border post of the Hamzeh Seyed al-Shohada Base in the province, killing 11 security forces.

Over the past years, Iranian security forces and border guards have engaged in clashes with terror groups, many of whom cross the country's borders with Pakistan and Iraq to carry out attacks inside Iran.
