IssueEvent not fired when project is deleted

When a project is deleted, an com.atlassian.jira.event.issue.IssueEvent is not thrown.
I was expecting a event with type ISSUE_DELETED_ID to be thrown.

Furthermore, I cannot use ProjectDeletedEvent since it is run after all issues have been deleted so I cannot use it.

Is this a jira bug and is it likey this will be fixed?

I have the same problem. I would like to get list of issues before delete project. I’ve bean searcing over API an doc and I don’t find any pre delete project event.
