Pakistan Terror Group – Jaish ul-Adl Displays Pics of Abducted Iranian Border Guards

Iran has confirmed that its border guards have been abducted by Jaish ul-Adl, a Sunni terror group in Pakistan- in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchistan on the porous border with Pakistan.

IRGC spokesman, Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif, told IRNA on Monday that 12 border guards have been kidnapped, rejecting earlier reports about the abduction of 14 forces.

The Pakistan-based terrorist group – Jaish ul-Adl posted two photos on its social media channel and claimed responsibility for the abduction of 12 Iranian border guards, including IRGC and Army forces, near the town of Mirjaveh on the Pakistani border.

Brigadier General Ramezan Sharif states that terrorists attacked Iranian border bases fifty times during the past year. He added that using infiltrators was a tactic used by such terror groups, which had frequently failed except for the recent kidnapping.

The kidnapping of Iranian Border Guards

Recently, Iran blamed Pakistan backed terrorist for abducting 14 Iranian border guards from the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchistan on the border with Pakistan. With no action, Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri has demanded that Pakistan should aggressively work towards releasing the Iranian border and not hamper relations between two nations.

“Based on agreements between the Armed Forces of the two countries to ensure security of common borders, we expect the Pakistani Armed Forces to adopt the necessary preparations and push for the immediate release of the abducted soldiers and border guards,” Baqeri said in a phone call with Pakistan’s Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa.

In a statement issued on October 16, Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said terrorists had abducted the Iranian border guards near the town of Mirjaveh on the Pakistani border.

The Jaish ul-Adl terrorist group claimed responsibility on its Twitter account. Baqeri also called on Pakistan to take “immediate and harsh” action to arrest terrorists behind the abduction.

The Iranian commander emphasised the significance of boosting the presence of Pakistani forces along the borders areas to promote peace and security in the border areas. The Pakistani general, according to the report, expressed grief over the abduction of the Iranian forces and assured the Iranian counterpart that the Pakistani army will hunt the terrorists.
