If Pakistan Cannot, Then Iran Will Attack Terror Camps in Pakistan: Warns Tehran

Published

on

Iran says it is prepared to carry out anti-terror operations on Pakistani soil if Pakistan is unable to carry out action against terror groups. Earlier, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRG) has warned Pakistan to trace and track militants who kidnapped 14 Iranian security forces on Pakistan-Iran border. Iran claims that ‘Sunni’  militant groups have safe havens in Pakistan and has warned that Tehran will attack their bases if Islamabad does not take action.

“As the interior minister and the person responsible for the country’s internal security, I announce that we are prepared to conduct military operations in areas where terrorists are present in Pakistan, under the Pakistani side’s supervision and with their permission,” Interior Minister Abdol-Reza Rahmani-Fazli said.

Fazli said such military operations would take place “if the need arises, and they (the Pakistani side) would not possess the willingness to operate for any reason.” “If we have refused to operate on the other side of the border so far, it has been merely because we wanted to respect Pakistan’s sovereignty,” the minister said.

Rahmani-Fazli said Iran and Pakistan could carry out joint border operations and share intelligence. He said efforts by the Iranian defence organizations, and especially the country’s Foreign Ministry, had led to the release of five Iranian border troops, who were kidnapped by Pakistani terrorists.

14 Iranian Border Guards Kidnapped by Pakistan

Earlier, Fourteen Iranian security forces, including members of the Revolutionary Guards, were kidnapped on the border with Pakistan according to state news agency IRNA.

Armed “Sunni” Muslim separatist groups in eastern Iran have escalated attacks against Iranian security targets in recent months. “These 14 people were kidnapped around 4 or 5 a.m. in Lulakdan border area,” IRNA quoted the unnamed official as saying.

Lulakdan is in Sistan-Baluchistan, a mainly Sunni province that has long been tormented by unrest from both separatist militants and drug smuggling gangs. In September, the Revolutionary Guards killed four “Sunni” Muslim militants at a border crossing with Pakistan, including the second-in-command of Jaish al-Adl, a group that has carried out several attacks on Iranian military targets in recent years.
