Jundallah appoints new leader

In the wake of the capture of Jundallah leader Abdul Malik Rigi earlier this week, the terror group has appointed a new leader. From Alarab Online:

Muhammad Dhahir Baluch has been appointed as “the new leader of the group,” Jundallah, the People’s Resistance Movement in Iran, said in a statement posted on its website, SITE reported.

Jundallah said in its website posting: “Let the (Iranian) regime know that it will face a movement that is stronger and much more solid than ever before and one whose existence it has not been aware of.

“It will see what our believing heroes among our Baluch children can do to the occupiers, the aggressors and the unjust. The falsehood of the senior leaders of the regime will soon be exposed.”
