Jaish al-Adl: shadowy Sunni extremists on Iran-Pakistan border

Jaish al-Adl: shadowy Sunni extremists on Iran-Pakistan borderA suicide attack that killed 27 troops in Iran’s restive southeast on Wednesday was claimed by Jaish al-Adl, a Sunni Muslim extremist group that only emerged seven years ago. Jaish al-Adl — Army of Justice in Arabic — is seen as the incarnation of Jundallah, or Soldiers of God, which began a bloody rebellion against the Islamic republic in 2000. For a decade, Jundallah waged a deadly insurgency on civilians and officials in the restive southeast.
