Tehran, Iran, Mar. 31 – Three agents of Iran’s various security forces were killed during armed clashes in north-west Iran, state television reported on Friday.

The latest incidents raise to six the number of security agents killed in West Azerbaijan Province in three days during clashes with anti-government rebels. On Wednesday, Iran’s state-run news agency ISNA reported that three agents of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps were killed in a gun-battle in the north-west town of Salmas.

Friday’s report said that armed rebels drove up to the security agents’ mobile security outpost in the town of Khoy in the direction of the nearby town of Maku and opened fire on them. Three agents of Iran’s State Security Forces and paramilitary Bassij force were killed after the hit-and-run clash, it said.

Khoy, Maku, and Salmas are situated in Iran’s West Azerbaijan province close to the Turkish border.

The Bassij, hard-line Islamists loyal to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, were given police powers after radical Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office last year.
