Jundallah, led by Abdolmalek Rigi, has claimed responsibility for numerous terrorist attacks in southeastern Iran, killing civilians as well as government officials.
The latest of such attacks was launched in October 2009 in the borderline region of Pishin in Iran’s southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan Province, killing more than 40 people including a number of top IRGC commanders and Shia and Sunni tribal leaders.
