GWADAR: The Iranian government has closed the Gabd-Rimdan border on Tuesday, officials said.
Official sources said Iran had closed the crossing point after armed clashes between its security forces and Iranian Baloch people in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan Baluchistan province, in which “hundreds of people were killed several others injured”.
Iranian forces also suffered casualties, including two senior intelligence commanders.
The border crossing point, inaugurated earlier this year, is located between Gabd in Balochistan and Rimdan in Iran’s Sistan province.
“The Gabd crossing gate was closed for an indefinite period for pilgrims and trade,” officials said.
