On Thursday, Pakistan voiced the wish that Iran will act against the militants responsible for the cross-border assault on security officers in the Panjgur district of Balochistan.
On Wednesday, militants from the other side of the Pakistan-Iran border attacked a convoy of security personnel patrolling close to the line in Chukab Sector, killing four Pakistani soldiers. The Iranian side had been asked to find the insurgents, and the ISPR responded.
Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, a spokesperson for the Foreign Office, stated that terrorists launched attacks against Pakistan from Iranian territory and strongly denounced the occurrence. She stated that the two neighbours had “exemplary fraternal ties” and expressed her hope that Iran would take tough action against those responsible for the terrorist activity.
She reaffirmed her commitment and urged Pakistan’s neighbouring nations to uphold the same. Pakistan would not permit anyone to use its territory to harm Iran.
The Balochistan district of Panjgur was the scene of a militant attack on Wednesday that left at least four security officers dead. The Iranian Embassy in Islamabad denounced the attack on Thursday.
According to the embassy, “terrorism is a common problem facing Iran and Pakistan, with both neighbouring countries being victims of that evil phenomenon”.
The Iranian embassy in the nation’s capital also sent its condolences to the victims’ families.
The military’s media arm, ISPR, had earlier claimed that “the terrorists used Iranian soil to target a convoy of security forces” that were manning the border. The names of the deceased troops were given as Sepoy Asad Ali, Lance Naiks Fareed Ullah Khan, Abdul Razzaq, and Muhammad Younas Khan in the announcement.
Authorities in Pakistan announced on Wednesday that four troops had been killed in a militant strike from the Iranian side of the border between the two nations.
According to a statement from the military, the incident happened in the isolated Panjgur district of the province of Baluchistan’s southwest.
