According to Iranian state TV, an attack on a Basij paramilitary base has left one dead and five others wounded in the southeastern town of Nikshahr.

Two attackers scaled the wall of a Basij paramilitary base and opened fire, killing one member of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard and wounding five others, Iranian media reported Saturday.

Nikshahr prosecutor Mohsen Gol mohammadi told the semi-official Mehr news agency the victim was a “member of the Guard” and identified him as Morteza Ali ahmadi. He did not elaborate on Ali ahmadi’s rank. The Basij is affiliated with the Guard.

Gol mohammadi said both attackers escaped.

The attack happened during the morning flag raising at the base.

Nikshahr is located in Sistan-Baluchistan province. Last week, a double-bombing attack injured three policemen in Zahedan, the provincial capital.

Baloch separatists have claimed responsibility for past attacks.

In December, a suicide car bomber struck a police headquarters in the port city of Chabahar, killing at least two police and wounding 42 others.
