TEHRAN, July 2 (Mehr News Agency) -- British and U.S. spy networks support Jondollah terrorist group to do sabotage acts in Iran from its bases in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Police Chief Esmaeil Ahmadi-Moqaddam said in Tehran on Monday.
Jondolah group has committed many terrorist operations in Sistan and Baluchestan province and has killed a large number of innocent people in the province, Ahmadi-Moqaddam told Al-Alam news network.
Through supporting the terrorist group in this specific region of the country, where Shia and Sunni Muslims are living peacefully, the United States and Britain are trying to create ethnic and religious discords, he noted.
Jondollah is a militant organization that is based in Pakistan's Baluchistan and affiliated with Al-Qaeda. It is a part of the Baluch insurgency in Pakistan and in Iran's Sistan and Baluchistan Province.
The group has been identified as a terrorist organization by Iran and Pakistan.
It leader is known to be Abdulmalak Rigi (also known as Emir Abdul Malik Baluch).
On April 3, 2007, ABC News reported that the United States government had been secretly encouraging and advising Jondollah in its attacks against Iranian targets.
